Recycle Right!

Wednesday September 20th 2023 

1:00-2:30 PM

Pine Hill Community Center

287 Main St, Pine Hill, NY 12465

Why can’t ALL plastics be recycled? What does the chasing arrows symbol really mean? Are pizza boxes in or out? Should you recycle that coffee cup? What about broken dishes? Putting unaccepted items in the recycling bin can damage equipment, harm workers, and reduce the value and environmental benefits of recycling.

In this class, you will learn: How does recycling ‘work’ in Ulster County? What are the benefits of recycling correctly? What makes something ‘recyclable’ or not? What is ‘wishcycling’ and how does it affect the recycling process?

This class will be offered in person at the Pine Hill Community Center, hosted by member(s) of the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency’s Recycling Outreach Team, in collaboration with the Town of Shandaken’s Conservation Advisory Council. Please pre-register for this class (walk-ins are also welcome). 

Accessibility:This class will take place indoors on the ground floor of the Community Center.  The facility is wheelchair accessible. Reserved seating is available by request; please contact Angelina Brandt at APEO@UCRRA.ORG. Please note: the use of face masks is optional at the Community Center.

We strive to offer equal program opportunities. Educational resources in Spanish are available by request. If you require any special accommodations or have questions about this program, please contact Angelina Brandt, Director of Sustainability, at APEO@UCRRA.ORG  or 845-336-3336.
