Attend the event to learn about some of the new recycling programs that will help keep more material out of the landfill. 

Many people in Los Alamos get a little depressed every time they throw out a glass bottle. Well, those feelings of sadness will soon disappear with the introduction of a glass drop-off recycling program in Los Alamos. 

Also, learn about the new County glass drop-off recycling program set to begining mid to late September, and provide insight on how to ensure the program is successful.

West will present the Co-op’s recycling programs and goals for the future. The Co-op operates on a triple bottom line: Performance, People, Planet; and they measure the success of the Co-op through the balance and success of the these three parts.  

They support the planet in a variety of ways through their products and vendors and now have a program for the community to partner with the Co-op on recycling efforts.  

Nagawiecki completed his undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Biology at  Monmouth College and a Master’s Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Idaho.

He coordinates public education and outreach for Environmental Services’ comprehensive waste and recycling programs that are provided to residents and the business community.

His additional duties include leading the County’s sustainability initiative which is focused on reducing the environmental impact of County operations in addition to educating the community about their role in the effort.

West has been working at the Co-op as coordinator for the last year. She brings a wide range of experience to her work at the Co-op including over two years working with youth from elementary to high school.
 
During graduate school, she taught undergraduate biology labs and continues to share her love of learning and conservation in her work at the Los Alamos Co-op.
