Feeling like Fall, With a Special Guest

We had our first official meeting on Wednesday and we were lucky enough to be joined by Coordinator for Madison’s Garbage and Recycling, George Dreckmann! He stopped by to see how we were doing, stayed for the meeting and shared a Nugget of Greenness with us! Thank you George!

George is working to plan a trip to the recycling center with us later this semester!
