Are you curious what happens to recycling in Kirkland, Wash.? Do you want to know how plastic bottles get separated from aluminum cans? What happens in storm drains?
See for yourself on tours offered through the 4th annual Kirkland Sustainability Education Series. Watch one couple survive on discarded food alone at our Outdoor Movie Night at Carillon Point – and learn what you can do at home to waste less food.
