Recycling: A community conversation

Lake County recycling surveys were recently posted online and at libraries in the area by Kendra Klenz, a Minnesota Green Corps member working with the Lake County Environmental Services Department.

Klenz will be working on waste prevention and recycling projects throughout the county. The survey is the first step to help her understand current recycling practices and opinions among county residents. Libraries will be hosting informal discussions where the public can ask questions about recycling and provide input about recycling and waste in the area. Refreshments will be available.

• 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the Silver Bay Public Library
