“E-Waste Disposal”
Electronic waste can contain hazardous materials and proper disposal is important. To help you dispose of your e-waste, we are offering a one day, “E-Waste Disposal” here at The DEC. Bring your e-waste with you since Jesse Roberts from possitivitygreen will be here to answer your questions and handle your collections. E-waste includes computers, CRTs, laptops, cameras, hand-held games, entertainment electronics and mobile phones. They can even destroy the contents of your hard drive if desired. Disposal is completely free except for CRTs which require a payment of $15 to handle.
“Our Wild Neighbors”
The City of Dublin will be kicking the day off with their feature, “Our Wild Neighbors”. Geared towards residents and environmentally friendly folks, the event starts at 9:30 a.m. and goes for one hour. Michelle Migliore, Nature Education Coordinator for the City of Dublin will share about our wild neighbors and why they choose to live in suburban settings. You'll also discover what the City of Dublin does to encourage healthy ecosystems and the challenges involved.

“From Sun to Solar Success Using Tax Incentives”One of the best energy sources comes from the sun and we’d like you to explore how to convert the sun to solar energy in our workshop, “From Sun to Solar Success Using Tax Incentives” starting at 11:00 am and running for one half hour.

Crandall will walk you through examples of how to get started, what resources can be helpful and how to engage employees to make it successful.
