11/1/2019 - Recycling: What’s IN? What’s OUT? - Help Is On the Way - Free Seminar Offering Guidance on Nov. 18th

Ever scratch your head over what you should – or shouldn’t – recycle? Recycling is the right thing to do, and you’re doing your best not to toss inappropriate disposables into your blue bin, but it can be confusing.

It’s time to cut through the confusion and recycle with confidence.

The Sustainable Fairfield Task Force (SFTF) is hosting a free presentation by Sherill Baldwin, the State’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) expert in Source Reduction and Recycling, who will introduce and explain the universal list of recyclables for Connecticut. The event will be on Monday, November 18 at the Main Branch of the Fairfield Public Library, 1080 Old Post Road, at 7:00 p.m. in the Memorial Room.

At DEEP since 2008, Ms. Baldwin has over 30 years experience in sustainable materials management. Her current projects include the RecycleCT Foundation, CT WRAP initiative and product stewardship programs. She facilitated the creation of a universal list of acceptable recyclables in the State of Connecticut and helps promote the “What’s IN? What’s OUT?” campaign. She received an M.S. in Resource Development from Michigan State University and B.A. in Solid Waste Management from UMASS/Amherst.

The SFTF provides support for Town practices and projects that can help Fairfield manage its growth to safeguard the health of its environment, ensure the reliability and economical use of its natural resources, and preserve the quality of life of its residents – today and for the future.
