OSHR 3098 - AWAY? THERE IS NO "AWAY." Disposing of the"TRASH" in Our Lives (Perk Series Tour)

  • Noncredit
  • Fort Collins

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Throw it away...where is away and why there really is not an "away." Listen and engage in a lively discussion about the real cost of all the "stuff" that gets disposed of every day. How does a modern landfill operate and what happens to the buried trash? What happens when the local landfill is full? Everyone produces trash…what can be done differently and how can we make a difference. Bring your questions and ideas to share with the assistant director and environmental educator of the Larimer County Solid Waste Department.

We will be taking a tour of the working landfill, so participants will want to dress appropriately for the weather. Closed toe shoes are mandatory.
