Program on Recycling (#3 & Final in Series of Three)

Waynesboro: The third and final program in Renfrew Institute's three-part series on recycling, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Renew!" is scheduled for Thursday, March 31 at 7pm in the visitors center at Renfrew Park in Waynesboro. The program is free and open to the public, and registration is not required. Donations will be accepted.
The program, "Everything Old is New Again...Making & Using Recycled Content Products" will be presented by Wayne Bowen, Program Manager, Pennsylvania Recycling Markets Center, Harrisburg, Pa.
In a program illustrated with PowerPoint slides, Bowen will discuss the "end products" of recycling. "Or are they end products?" he asks. "We will explore some innovative and exciting ways that materials can be used over and over again. You might be surprised to learn how many times your aluminum soda can has been 'round the circle'!"
Audience participation is encouraged, and several recycled content product samples will be passed around for hands-on examination. "Closing the recycling loop is most important," Bowen said. "We will talk about the many ways that happens."
The program series is underwritten in part by Charles and Undine Warner, formerly of Waynesboro, and by Today's Horizon Fund Contributors: PenMar Development Corp. and the Nora Roberts Foundation. Facility support is provided courtesy of Renfrew Museum and Park.
Parking is available behind the visitors center or in Renfrew's lower lot off Welty Road. For more information, please visit www.renfrewinstitute.org or call the institute at 717-762-0373.
