ARE YOU RECYCLING RIGHT?

The Little Compton Garden Club, the Sogkonate Garden Club, and the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (Resource Recovery) invite residents to attend an interactive presentation on Wednesday, April 18th at 7:00 p.m. at the Little Compton Community Center. Pat Perry, one of Resource Recovery’s lively educators and speakers, will present information on all the proper ways to recycle. Popular questions such as: Do I leave the top on my orange juice carton? Do I flatten my milk carton? Can I recycle my containers for take out food? Can birthday wrapping paper be recycled? will be answered along with many others. All ages are welcome to come and learn how to better save our landfills and recycle regularly! The program is FREE and open to the public.

For questions regarding the program, contact Nancy Clark of the Little Compton Garden Club, 617-962-5482, or Shirley Hardison of the Sogkonate Garden Club, 401-443-0075.
