April 22nd: SRRC Open House
To most people, a recycling center is simply where their single-use plastic water bottles wind up — but to the eco nerds, zero wasters, and climate change activists among us, a recycling center is a magical place. If you fall into all those categories join us for a private tour of the Stella Roberts Recycling Center in honor of our Earth’s birthday!
The Stella Roberts Recycling Center is more than just a recycling center — it’s also a nonprofit organization and education center. Learn how our center sorts and process recycling dropped-off.
