State of Waste on Vashon

Steve Bergman of Zero Waste Vashon kicked off our January Community Teach-In, with a presentation on how the Island is doing on lowering our waste output.

HINT: Not good. (3/4 of what we send to the landfill is actually recyclable.)

Steve talks about Island programs that can help us cut back on our biggest Island export.

Check out Zero Waste Vashon for community projects and guidance that can make a dent in your own personal waste stream!

The monthly Teach-Ins are a project of the Vashon Island Time Exchange. January's was a Virtual Repair Cafe.  Check out the videos of lamp fixes, kitchen appliance repairs and more.
