Outreach staff can regularly be found out and about in the community participating in local events with our ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ interactive display booth. Outreach Staff welcome the opportunity to visit all municipalities in Wake County and to attend science fairs, career days, Earth Day events, and other local environmental education events.  

Please contact us to request our outreach display at your next event. If you are interested in an educational presentation, learn about our community presentations.

Attending community events provides an opportunity for Wake County residents to:

  • Learn more about the free waste and recycling services available to residents
  • Ask waste professionals questions on how to recycle more in the home and at work
  • Sign up to take waste facility tours, join with us on Facebook or take part in pilot waste-reduction initiatives
  • Receive educational materials on waste and recycling facilities, programs and events, including quick reference guides, program booklets and event fliers
  • Participate in games to learn the benefits of waste reduction and recycling and win prizes that can help reduce waste
  • Engage with the County in a discussion about the impact our waste can have on the local environment and the important role we all play in managing the growing waste problem
  • Take home recycled giveaways that demonstrate the benefits of recycling.
