Recycling 101: Zoom Presentation Tonight by Expert Tells You All You Need to Know

OLD LYME — Do you ever scratch your head over what you should – or should not – recycle?
Recycling is the right thing to do, and you are doing your best not to toss inappropriate disposables into your blue bin, but it can be confusing. It’s time to cut through the confusion and recycle with confidence.
Saint Ann’s Parish/Environmental Committee, Lyme Public Library and Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library are hosting a free Zoom presentation Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 6 p.m. by Sherill Baldwin, Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) expert in Source Reduction and Recycling. She will introduce and explain the universal list of recyclables for Connecticut.

Her current projects include the RecycleCT Foundation, CT WRAP initiative and product stewardship programs.
