Three R's Committee: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Waste Stewardship - collaborate and educate to minimize solid waste disposal through prevention and reduction while increasing reuse and recycling.
Our initiatives focus on how we can encourage better waste stewardship in our community through prevention and reduction of waste, reuse of resources, and recycling.
One of our proudest achievements is The Sharing Tree, that was created as an outgrowth of this committee in 2009.
Our 2015 focus is two or three initiatives that will educate and engage the community to Reduce consumption and packaging, Reuse someone’s cast-offs in a new or different way, and Recycle what’s left.
Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every other month at The Sharing Tree, 218 East 3rd Avenue, in the heart of Midtown.
