Members of the public are invited to attend a free recycling presentation at 7 p.m. Monday, April 28, in the Fredricksen Library Community Room located on 19th and Walnut streets in Camp Hill.
“Members of the general populace can sometimes be misinformed or ill-informed about things going on in the recycling arena. This meeting is designed to answer what can and cannot be recycled and why,” said Bruce Bigalow, Environmental Club member.
Presenters will include Deb Crandall, recycling coordinator with Penn Waste Inc. and Justin Miller, recycling coordinator with the Cumberland County Recycling and Waste Authority.
“We’ll also address the recycling of electronics,” said Bigelow. “Since it’s now a statewide law that you can’t put them out on the curb anymore, we’ll discuss alternatives and answer other questions of concern to citizens,” he said of the 90-minute presentation.
