Registrations are open for Pennsylvanians to take part in a free recycling and waste reduction webinar on Wednesday August 18, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Participants will learn how to properly recycle or dispose of certain items including hard to recycle and pharmaceutical items.  While the webinar will overview best practices PRC Education Program Coordinator Nancy Martin Shares that residents should check with local municipalities on their restrictions and instructions.  “Participants are always surprised to hear me say the words ‘When in doubt, throw it out,’ but people should not place their K-cups, yogurt containers, takeout clamshells and many other plastic items in a recycling bin,” said Martin.’

PRC is recognized as a state and national leader in waste reduction and recycling.  To learn more about its various programs and collection events, visit www.prc.org.
