COLUMBUS – Central Community College played host to the inaugural Recycling Day event, as a part of America Recycles Day.
CCC Environmental Sustainability Manager Olivia Whittaker says they didn’t expect the event to have a huge turnout in it’s first year, but hope to continue growing the event each year. A variety of different groups were at the event presenting educational information.
“So we have Recycle Monster, who does our [CCC] recycling, we have Keep Columbus Beautiful, and we have our environmental science class presenting on a project they did, and then the environmental sustainability class and then Wastecap Nebraska is also here,” says Whittaker.
Attendees got a trivia question sheet to fill out using information they received at each of the stations and Whittaker says she was pleased with all of the booths at the event. The event was held from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday and will be held again next year.
