Join the League of Women Voters-Whitewater Area on Thurs., November 21 at 6:30 pm at the Whitewater Municipal Building, 312 W. Whitewater Street, when we talk trash with representatives from the University, City of Whitewater, and John’s Disposal. Come ready to learn the 6 R’s of Sustainability: rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and replace and how you can implement one or more of these practices to help the environment. Do you have a question about what is recyclable and what isn’t? Now’s your chance to ask it and have it answered by the experts.
The League has a long history with waste management. Policy work on solid waste began in 1971 when Leagues studied solid waste disposal and then turned their attention to national policy on reuse, reclamation and recycling.
Our program will be accompanied by an exhibit in the lobby of the Irvin L. Young Library during the month of November.
