Recycling Training and Presentations

UW Recycling offers recycling training and presentations known as Trash Talks, which consist of an on-site visit to your group’s campus location to provide accurate details about waste diversion and answer questions about sorting responsibly (including what happens to recyclables once they’re put in the bin).
