Mar 22: Recycling and toxins event at Carnegie Science Center

Beyond Paper and Plastic: A Closer Look at Recycling and Environmental Toxins, a free workshop hosted by Women for a Healthy Environment. We all know to recycle our paper and plastics, but what about other everyday items that contain harmful toxins?

At this workshop, you'll learn about why you should take the extra step to recycle items like light bulbs, batteries, ceramic tile, building materials, small appliances, cell phones, computers, printers, and many other items that your interact with each day.

Why is there a fee to recycle some of these items and not for others? Our speakers will address this question and any others that you raise.

BONUS: Attendees are encouraged to bring cell phones, alkaline batteries and inkjet/laser jet cartridges for proper, ethical disposal and recycling ... at NO CHARGE.

5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Carnegie Science Center. Free admission, light refreshments will be served. For more information and to register online, click here.
