Community Knowledge: Stump Our Recycling Chumps! – Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Bring your toughest recycling questions and see if you can stump Holland’s local experts! The recycling initiatives and sorting practices of Republic, the new city-wide waste hauler, will be discussed. Residents will then be able to ask their toughest recycling questions. The event will be live streamed at the Living Sustainably Along the Lakeshore Facebook page, so you can also participate virtually if you are not able to join us.

As precipitation increases due to climate change, understanding the best practices for managing stormwater at the municipal and residential level is more critical than ever.
