“After taking the Recycling 101 course, I have a much deeper understanding of how and why things are recycled, where to recycle within my local community and region, and the knowledge to make better buying decisions to avoid excess waste.
This course helped me not only at home, but in my work with clients. As a recycler, I can share what I have learned to help my community consider what they can do to increase their impact.”
