Recycling 101

Trash Talk is the city of Vancouver’s page for events and resources.

Guide to Garbage and Recycling is a Portland resource guide.

If you live elsewhere, what you can and cannot recycle may be different than what you will find at the above sources. Be sure to check in with your local community’s guidelines to garbage and recycling to make sure you’re doing it right!

As I always say, start ’em early! Below are a whole array of books for the kiddos to learn about recycling!
