Did you know that Reno, Sparks, Washoe County, and unincorporated Washoe County combined send about 4,000 tons of trash to the landfill everyday during the winter and 5,000 tons during the summer? To put that into perspective, that's the weight of 700 elephants, every day! When we throw something away, does it really go away?
Join USGBC Northern Nevada as we learn from local non-profit organization, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful. We will discuss how to reduce our waste and impact on the environment by following the "five Rs" and how together, we can keep the Truckee Meadows beautiful!
Light snacks will be provided.
