Waste Reduction Workshop @ Spring Lake Park Shelter
On September 21, IWRC experts will be in Cherokee to provide training in composting and recycling. They will also provide information on the emerging contaminant PFAS and how it impacts Cherokee. The workshop is tailor-made for our community and will provide the tools needed to create a strong waste reduction program and make Cherokee an even better place to call home.
“A greater quality of life can be reached within a community by increasing awareness and strategies to address food waste, recycling materials, and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances,” said IWRC Program Manager Jenny Trent. “Partnerships forged through networking to solve common issues have the capacity to bring together a community to improve community pride, increase opportunities and create a healthier environment.” All members of the Cherokee community are encouraged to attend.
Join us for the in-person community training workshop September 21 from 4:00-6:00 pm at Koser Park Open Shelter. Please register at https://iwrc.uni.edu/food-waste/workshops.
