Recycling conversation at Effingham library

EFFINGHAM -- The Effingham Public Library will host a panel discussion about the current challenges facing recycling  at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Workman Room.

The dilemma with what to do with items earmarked for recycling is playing out across the U.S. The country generates more than 250 million tons of waste a year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, with about a third of this recycled and composted.

Guest panelists are Bill Elving and Nancy Totten of Centenary United Methodist Church; Brain Hayes, owner of Landfill 33; Chris Mette, representing recycling in Teutopolis; and Sarah Ruholl Sehy with Effingham Recycles. They will share insights into how the situation developed and how our community can respond.

No registration is required for this free event. For more information, call  at 217-342-2464 ext. 1, email info@effinghamlibrary.org, or go online at www.effinghamlibrary.org.
