Brita Sailer to host workshop to update residents on recycling practices


What numbered plastics can you recycle? How do you properly dispose of batteries? How about fluorescent lights? What about Styrofoam?

You might think you know the answers to these and other recycling related questions, but Brita Sailer, Cass County recycling education coordinator, said recycling standards are changing, and you might benefit from a refresher course on the three R’s.

“You really do have to adapt to make sure you are up to speed,” Sailer said.
