More details for the event: This year we are going to have a White Elephant Gift Exchange: it’s time to re-gift that awkward present you received last year, or that ’70’s tchotchke sitting above the fireplace! Wrap it up and see what you get in exchange!
Please bring your favorite potluck/heavy hor d’ouvres and a bottle of wine/ beer, etc. to share. MCA will provide non-alcoholic drinks.

Recycling: Virtual Tour

What happens after you toss paper, plastic, and glass into your recycling bin? Join us at the clubhouse, 7:00 PM on Tuesday, Nov 15th, for a virtual tour of Cascade Recycling Center where our stuff gets sorted and sold. Learn what we can recycle and what messes up their system—and why. Can we recycle compostable plates if we don’t have yard waste? What do we do with plastic bags? What about mixed cardboard-plastic containers? Bring all the stuff you’ve always wondered about.

Each month the Waste Management Cascade Recycling Center processes 12,000 tons of commingled recyclables from over 250,000 Western Washington households. Paper, metals, glass, and plastic bottles are collected together. To sort those materials takes specially designed technology, overseen by quality control employees. These machines then create bales of separated materials ready for shipment to processing facilities, where they are made into something new.
