Texas Campaign for the Environment: Arlington Recycling Campaign Kick-Off

Mar 22 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Fielder House Museum
1616 W. Abram
Arlington , TX

Texas Campaign for the Environment is taking on a new campaign in the city of Arlington to help reduce waste and boost recycling.

Most Arlington residents in apartments and condos do not have convenient options to recycle where they live. Many businesses lack these services as well. In single-family neighborhoods, only a portion of compostable brush material is being used to create mulch and compost. There are so many more opportunities to reduce waste and we want to hear from you about your priorities!

Learn about the upcoming recycling campaign and contribute your ideas to make this a success.
