Have you ever erred on the side of putting something in the recycling bin rather than throwing it away, simply in hopes that it can be recycled? What happens to it when you do? And what’s the story with toothbrushes and coffee pods?

We’re here to help solve a few recycling mysteries! Join Recycling Coordinator Jane Wilch and Climate Action Engagement Specialist Sarah Gardner for a discussion of those perceived recycling gray areas.

As with previous “Speaking Of…” discussions, this will be a casual conversation without slides or charts. It’s a chance to have your recycling questions answered and learn how the process relates to a barrel of monkeys.

Questions? Email Sarah-Gardner@iowa-city.org or Jane-Wilch@iowa-city.org.
