Recycling Paper with Chrissy B from CVSWMD

Recycled paper is paper that is reconstituted into  paper again. The best paper to be using is 100% post-consumer recycled paper that is made from paper scrap that can, no longer be used for its intended purpose by the consumer, which is reprocessed into paper again.

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016 Chrissy B from CVSWMD(Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District) came for a visit to show K-2nd CC groups how to recycle paper and why it is important! 

She will be back again on May 25, 2016 for some more Recycling Projects!
