Have catalogues you don’t want to get in the mail anymore? Worry not! The WHS Climate Action Club will unsubscribe you from them. All you need to do is drop off your catalogues at the RDF THIS SATURDAY, December 17th, or in the boxes in any house office at the high school until January 4th.

Don’t feel like carrying the whole catalogue? Just bring the back page with your name and the catalogue’s.

Easy, check that off the list.

Public Workshop on the Wellesley RDF
Thursday, April 16th, 9:00 to 11:00 am
At the Department of Public Works Training Room, 20 Municipal Way
From cardboard to hazardous waste, about 14,000 tons of material passed through the Wellesley RDF in 2014. Come for a behind-the-scenes look at the recyclables, reusables, and just plain trash that the RDF handles with care. At this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn how the RDF managers find gold in our garbage—and you’ll hear what lies ahead for Wellesley’s 42-year-old facility. Optional tour of the RDF after the workshop. (Note: This event was originally scheduled for February 11, and was rescheduled due to snow storms.)
Sponsored by the Wellesley Department of Public Works, Natural Resources Commission, and Sustainable Energy Committee.
This workshop is the first step in a collaborative process to identify initiatives to further improve solid waste management in Wellesley.
