A Special Evening of Community Bingo and Recycling
The bingo hall quickly filled to near capacity as participants came for a chance to learn more about why recycling must be part of our lives every day. Tina Van Zile, Environmental Director and organizer of the event, welcomed attendees with a brief overview of how the Environmental Department runs the recycling program and how community members may contribute to the overall cost to maintain its operations.
While November 15th is the official America Recycles Day, the event took place last Thursday because Tribal offices are closed on Fridays.
According to the America Recycles Day website, this day is dedicated to implementing ONE DAY to educate, ONE DAY to motivate and ONE DAY to make recycling bigger and better.
Tina explained that community members now have access to a dumpster at the Recycling Center in addition to the weekly trash pickup.
