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.
