All Things Recycling: A community conversation about waste diversion in Golden

Posted by mpinson@cityofgolden.net

What’s going on in the world of recycling these days? Where is my recycling going and what’s the deal with China no longer accepting materials? Is Styrofoam recyclable? What about coffee cups?

The City of Golden Community Sustainability Advisory Board (CSAB) invites community members to “All Things Recycling: A Community Conversation About Waste Diversion in Golden” from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the Buffalo Rose, 1119 Washington Ave. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Hear the latest information industry experts about where our materials go, recent changes in the industry, and how your family can participate in organic waste collection and other waste diversion programs. In light of recent media reports about shrinking Chinese markets and contamination issues, this event will answer your questions and show how Golden’s local materials are getting to market.

During this free event, attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for tours of the local recycling facility and the City’s Organics Collection Program (compost!). The Buffalo Rose has generously provided the space for the event, and will be offering food and drinks for purchase. With prize drawings, giveaways, and hands-on learning activities, the All Things Recycling event is perfect for families to learn how to increase your participation in the various City programs and help us achieve Golden’s waste reduction goals.
