What is this “Single Stream Recycling” I have been hearing about? Which materials can or cannot be recycled in our community? Where do the recyclables go? Who picks up what? Where do I take household hazardous wastes like chemicals, oil, poisons or paint, and large items like electronics, appliances and tires? How can recycling be made easier for us? What is the deal with food scraps and composting in Asheville? Find out the answers to all these questions and help continue the celebration of National Recycling Day with us on Wednesday, November 16!
