Recycling Block Captain Program
Help educate your neighbors about recycling, composting and waste prevention. Block captains distribute recycling information to their neighbors three times a year. You define your territory and we provide the handouts.

We will not be gathering in person during the pandemic and will use email and Zoom web-conferencing to stay connected.
The summer 2020 handout is now available for download below. Printed versions will be available in the near future. Check with your Block Captain for updates. Don’t have a block captain? Sign up to be one!
