League of Women Voters Recycling in Muscatine Presentation

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Muscatine, IA 52761 United States

Muscatine residents have been using blue bins and recycling for several years now, but questions continue to arise about what we can and cannot put in those blue bins. Muscatine residents want to recycle but want to do it the correct way. There is so much we do not know about what can and cannot be recycled. We understand aluminum soda cans are recyclable, but what about plastic jugs like motor oil and milk jugs? They both have a triangle with a number on them. Can a motor oil plastic container be recycled along with milk jugs? We understand newspaper and card board can be recycled, but what about wrapping paper? What about cardboard egg cartons, or Styrofoam? People who live in the county, but outside of Muscatine want to know what recycling options they have. What happens to the recycling once it leaves Muscatine? What are some of the mistakes we make in recycling? These questions and many more will be answered in a program the Muscatine County League of Women Voters will present on January 26 at 7 pm on Channel 5. David Popp, City of Muscatine’s Solid Waste/Collections and Drainage Manager, will be on hand to discuss this important project and provide some answers about our recycling program. Several examples of items will be presented to get his input about what can be successfully recycled and what cannot. Please join the League of Women Voters on January 26 at 7 pm on Channel 5 to learn more about recycling in Muscatine.
