Recycling Education Program Starting Back Up

Sep 12, 2013 2:25 PM

After being on hiatus for a year, a local recycling education program is making its way back to Butte County. Starting next month, the Butte Environmental Council will be traveling to schools to provide interactive workshops on waste reduction. The council recently took over the program from Chico State and will be shutting down its hands-on recycling museum that operated for 11 years on Southgate Lane. Some of the exhibit items will be made mobile so they can be incorporated into the classroom. As for the rest of the exhibits from the museum, there will be a yard sale for the public at 306 Otterson Drive in Chico. It will be tomorrow from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30-11 a.m. Educators that are interested in having the RARE program visit their school can contact the BEC at 891-6426.
