FREE ADMISSION – 1757 Ashland St., Ashland, OR. One mile west of I-5 Exit 14
When curbside recycling began in the 1970s it was simple and easy to do, but a lot has changed in the last fifty years. Learn what happened to recycling, what to expect the future of recycling in Oregon to look like, how to prevent waste locally, what more can be done. You will also find out where local resources exist beyond our curbside recycling carts, for those more challenging materials – such as batteries, mattresses, compost, metal, and hazardous waste. Jaime will also share creative ways to use different items that otherwise could end up in the landfill.
Jamie Rosenthal was born and raised in a small coastal town in Oregon, then put roots down in Ashland to earn her Bachelors of Science in human communication, and to play collegiate volleyball, for the Southern Oregon University Raiders.
