Curb Your Recycling: Understanding Recycling and Waste Reduction

Curb Your Recycling: Understanding Recycling and Waste Reduction

Have you “bin” confused on recycling and other waste questions? Join the experts from the Burbank Recycle Center for a basic training on what goes where and why.

This 90 minute Zoom session is an essential starter kit to help you navigate past the confusion of packaging with tips on how to reduce creating disposal in the first place. (It's a condensed Cliff Notes version of our intensive 8 class zero waste training program, Waste Warriors)

Get inspired as we explore the 6 R’s of waste reduction: ReThink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Return (nutrients back to nature). Our session will cover:

  • What recycling is (and what it isn’t)
  • What happens when your discarded material is picked up and goes “away”
  • Understanding of plastics and packaging types
  • Electronics and Household hazardous waste
  • Organics (yard clippings, food scraps)
  • Waste reduction and prevention tips
  • Answers at Your Disposal: City of Burbank’s Where it Goes guide
