Ever wonder what plastic bottles get recycled or how to do backyard composting? Ask our Patch Pro!
How much do you recycle at home?
Perhaps you aren't sure about what could or could not be recycled?
Or maybe you are wondering about composting and how easy it is?
If you have questions on recycling and composting or want to learn more about them then Ginny Black of Plymouth is a great person to ask.
Black, a Plymouth City Council member and a Planner Principle State for the MN Pollution Control Agency, has been involved in recycling reform and education in the state since the 1980s.
Black, who refers to her work title as the "Organics Recycling Coordinator," has been working or volunteering on the state level to bring better recycling efforts and regulations in Minnesota. She currently works on legislative changes to classify composting as recycling.
"Working on composting to turn organic matter back into the dirt it once was is a form of recycling though people don’t think of it that way," Black said. "Composting is much simpler than people make it out to be."
