Introducing New Program at WSWMD
"Let's shrink our waste together!"
Are you looking for an opportunity to give-back to your community while being environmentally friendly and developing educational skills?
This spring, the WSWMD will be launching a brand-new volunteer program! The "Waste Watchers" is a group of dedicated volunteers seeking to educate members of their communities about proper disposal methods and answer the aged old question "Which bin does this go into?" While
