Virtual Hendersonville Green Drinks: Recycling – What Can and Can’t be Recycled, and Why!
December 10, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us on Thursday, December 10, 6-7 p.m. as we hear from Christine Wittmeier, the Environmental Programs Coordinator for Henderson County. Christine will be talking about recycling, specifically what items can and can’t be recycled, and why.
Do you know what you should be recycling at home? Recycling contamination and “wishful recycling” are big problems for local recycling partners and can put recycling in your community at risk. Join Henderson County Environmental Programs as we discuss the state of recycling in our area. You will leave with an understanding of what can and can’t be recycled, why some items are not recyclable, and where to bring your hard to recycle items.
Christine Wittmeier grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and graduated Magna Cum Laude in environmental science at Auburn University. Before working for the county, she was the environmental educator at Asheville GreenWorks. She also serves as past president for the state-wide nonprofit, Environmental Educators of North Carolina, and is chair of the recycling team at Mountain True. In her free time, Christine is passionate about native gardening and often escapes to the mountains for a hike with her husband and senior hound dog, Red.
