Curb Your Recycling: Understanding Recycling and the New Food Scrap Collection Program
Have you “bin” confused on recycling and the food scrap collection law?? Join the experts from the Burbank Recycle Center for a basic training on what goes where and why.

This 90 minute Zoom session is an essential starter kit to help you navigate past the confusion of '"what goes where" including the new food scrap collection (organics) law. We will also discuss packaging types with tips on how to reduce creating disposal in the first place. (It's a condensed Cliff Notes version of our intensive 8 class zero waste training program, Waste Warriors)

Get inspired as we explore the 6 R’s of waste reduction: ReThink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Return (nutrients back to nature). Our session will cover:

--What recycling is (and what it isn’t)

--What happens when your discarded material is picked up and goes “away”

--Understanding of plastics and packaging types

--Electronics and Household hazardous waste --Organics (yard clippings, food scraps)
