      Salem: We Have A Waste Problem

      Salem: We Have a Waste Problem! – Let’s face it. Salem has a waste problem and we are not alone. Everyone has felt the effects of China’s decision to stop importing US recycling. As a result, we can’t put certain types of plastic in the recycling bin anymore, and more recyclables are ending up in our local waste streams. The event features a panel discussion to highlight local waste issues, possible solutions, and the challenges we face in reducing waste. An audience Q and A follows the discussion. Speakers include Ramsey McPhillips of Zero Waste McMinnville; and Hollie Oakes-Miller of Salem Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). The event is organized by the Salem DSA in collaboration with Clean Air Now (CAN). Vegan and gluten-free snacks and refreshments will be available. Contact for more details.

      Cost: Free -
