“It’s kind of meant to make people know and understand that some of the things they have in their house we don’t want to throw in your yard, they don’t want to throw them in a sewer,” said Sarah Shea, interim director of Pennsylvania Resources Council. “It’s not good for the water supply, it’s not good for the soil or the earth. So it’s good to make sure you are able to dispose of these things responsibly and properly. “
The next event is on May 1st at North Park. Registration is required.
