Trash Talk: Rethinking Recycling
April 14 | 6:00 pm CDT
Courtney Gallaher, Associate Professor in the NIU Department of Geographic and Atmospheric Sciences and the Center for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality, will lead us in a lively discussion about the ways in which we consume products, types of materials they are made from, and the environmental and social justice implications of our recycling industry.
Dr. Gallaher will be joined by Meghann Maves, Total Recycling Program Manager at Waste Management Recycling Services, who will describe the recycling process and share examples of what happens when we don’t prepare our recyclable items properly.
