Since 1992, SWANCC has provided this two-sided educational calendar. On the front (i.e. page 1), it features daily waste reduction tips and suggestions on how to be a better steward of our environment, as well as SWANCC’s programs and resources on the reverse side (i.e. page 2). New this year are “Curbside Recycling Guidelines” for traditional materials, as well as common items that are not accepted in a cart – basic information that applies to all of the SWANCC communities.
