Perdido Landfill Holding Recycling Workshops

December 31, 2012

Escambia County Solid Waste Management will host two recycling workshops this week to give children a learning experience in recycling.

Offered on Wednesday, January 2 and Thursday, January 3, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m, the workshops are held at the Perdido Landfill, 13009 Beulah Road, Cantonment. The cost of the workshops is a donation of one pair of new or gently used shoes to be given to Soles4Soles.

Activities at the workshops include tours of the landfill and recycling center, arts and crafts with recycled materials and games that focus on recycling and reuse. Participants should wear clothes that are appropriate for outside play and bring a lunch, snack and drinks. Please try to pack a zero waste lunch, which means reusable containers.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Solid Waste Management. For more information or to pre-register, call (850) 937-2160.
