The program has been around since 2000, but it began extending its reach to rural communities just a few years ago. Normally, they rotate which ones to go to, but this year they say they’ll head where the public wants it most.
The classes are meant to help residents and businesses rethink their waste habits.
“Raw materials are a finite resource. There are only so many. We are not going to make another earth. So it’s important to use what we have available to us in the most practical way possible,” said Kelly Bell, Program Coordinator.
The classes will be free. The program will head to the town with the most applications by Dec. 31. Click here for more information.
