Bristol residents are invited to a Recycling 101 Workshop to be hosted by the City of Bristol Public Works Department. Learn how to divert food waste from the waste stream to create organic material that can be added to soil to help grow plants. Food scraps and yard waste together currently make up about 30% of what we throw away, and should be composted instead. Making compost keeps these materials out of the landfills where they take up space and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
Sherill Baldwin from the State of CT Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) will be presenting attendees with an update on what does and doesn’t go into the blue recycle bins.
No registration required. The workshop will be held at the Bristol Public Library in Meeting Room 1. FREE and open to all.
For questions or for more information, please contact Bristol Public Works at 860-584-6125.
This workshop and free materials are funded by an annual grant from Covanta to being workshops and programs to the Bristol community.
