 Event Type:"Green" Bag Lunch-n-Learn
 Details:

A state ban on electronic waste in landfills goes into effect in 2013and means that resident electronics can no longer be thrown away (it’s already illegal for businesses to throw away e-waste). Learn how this bill will create jobs, where you can recycle electronics in Colorado Springs, what to look for in an e-recycling firm and how to protect yourself against identity theft. Drew Johnson, with Colorado Springs-based Blue Star Recyclers, will share Blue Star’s award-winning non-profit program, which employs members of our local disAbled community.

The lunch-n-learn runs over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12: 49 p.m., at the City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada, in Suite 102. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation.

Nov. 15 is America Recycles Day. Residents can support local recycling efforts and win rewards for themselves by donating through the Give! 2012 campaign this month to Blue Star Recyclers or Pikes Peak Recycling on the Rise. Visit IndyGive.com to learn more.

Each month, the City Office of Innovation and Sustainability sponsors a lunch-n-learn topic on an environmental issue. Questions? Contact City of Colorado Springs Sustainability Coordinator Carrie McCausland, 719-385-CSGN (2746) or cmccausland@springsgov.com.
