Forest Grove City Library speaker to demystify recycling

If the recycling symbol is on a bin, many people think that means they can throw any recyclable material inside. But that’s not the case, according to Forest Grove resident and recycling expert Cecilia Warner, who will unveil the mysteries of recycling when she speaks at the Forest Grove City Library at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23.

An object’s recyclability can be affected by its shape or material, the overall recycling market and much more.

Warner received the title of Master Recycler after completing a Metro course on recycling. The course required 30 hours of relevant community service after completing it — Warner has given 1,300 hours.

She promises a hands-on presentation with no powerpoint and lots of swag. The event is free and is the first of three in a sustainability series hosted by the library.
