Our Trash Talk! travelers, Dean and Karen Smith, have been on the move again, just returning from a trip to Australia and New Zealand this time. Dean retired last year from his position as the Director of the East Central Indiana Solid Waste District; he and Karen have been on the go ever since!
Dean and Karen make sure to look for recycling bins wherever they go, be that in their local community or on vacation. They ROGO (recycle on the go!). And just as they did on their last trip to Alaska, they snapped some photos while sporting our Trash Talk! polo shirts. Karen is pictured here with a beautiful background and a recycling foreground! Make sure to look for bins wherever you go, too. And when you can’t find one for your recyclables, bring them home to recycle whenever you can.
Thanks to the Smiths for recycling wherever they go and spreading the word about our publications. Trash Talk! is our 4-page newsletter targeted to upper elementary school students and packed with educational activities and local waste reduction and recycling information. A teacher guide accompanies each newsletter. Check out these samples.
