You’ve reacted to her recycling Q&A stories and marveled at her recycling tips. Now you’ll have a chance meet Kane County Recycling Coordinator Jennifer Jarland in person Friday, May 18, when she headlines a seminar at Waubonsee Community College titled, “Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!”
Hosted by the West Towns Community Resource Team, the program will include a slide presentation, time for questions and answers and some fun giveaways, including the Kane County Recycling Guidelines Poster.
The free, public event takes place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Thursday, May 18, at the Student Center, Room STC 106, at Waubonsee Community College’s Sugar Grove Campus at IL Route 47 and Waubonsee Drive.
During the meeting, you’ll get a chance to meet Jarland and get the lowdown on what you should be recycling at home and at work. She’ll cover what can and cannot go in your curbside recycling cart, where and how to recycle many other things that you can’t put in the bin and offer her Top Recycling Tips.
You’ll also learn where you can recycle items at drop-off locations throughout Kane County, including Styrofoam, electronics, books, hazardous waste, batteries, paint. She’ll recap recycling events scheduled for this year and all of the things you can take to them, including the free confidential document shredding dates.
