Great conversation with Josy Wright from Waste Connections about recycling! Recycling the RIGHT way and the RIGHT stuff! The biggest problem right now is what Josy calls “wishful recyclers.” Putting things in that big blue bin that shouldn’t go there. It messes up the system, inhibits our recycling process and really causes so many problems. Please tune into this interview and see if there are any tips and tricks that can help how you recycle at home or at your business. Also, did you know Waste Connections has an app? They do! You can look up all kinds of things and make sure you are recycling items right. How awesome! Thank you for tuning in and supporting Just a Girl in Camas. Let’s spread the word about recycling and share this video.
