Join Us For a Panel on What To Do With Household Waste

Join us on Tuesday, April 23, 7:30 pm, at the Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW, for a free panel discussion, sponsored by the Chevy Chase Citizens Association 


In our annual Earth Month meeting, we’re discussing the perennial household issue of how to dispose of your waste: recycling, using the trash can, sending it down the drain, or composting it. 


We will have speakers from the D.C. Department of Public Works, DC Water, and a master plumber. Come and ask questions that may have puzzled you, such as whether you can recycle pizza boxes, ketchup bottles, and containers with labels, colored glass, and screw-on tops. If they can be recycled, do they need to be cleaned first? Is wax paper or a wax-coated food container recyclable? What items should go into the sink disposal or be flushed down a commode?


Get the answers to these and other questions from John Deignan of DC Water, Howard Lee of the D.C. Department of Public Works, and Chris Hartman from Thomas E. Clark Plumbing. Please join us starting at 7:30 pm Tuesday, April 23, at the Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Ave., N.W. Snacks will be served.
