Resource Recovery presents Recycling Right in Rhode Island – Presented by Madison Burke-Hindle

You recycle, right? But do you recycle right? If you’ve ever found yourself squinting to look for a recycling symbol on a product, arguing with your friend or spouse over a pizza box, or wondering what happens to your recycling when it leaves the curb, you’ll have these questions answered during Recycling Right in Rhode Island… and Going Beyond the Bin. You’ll learn how your efforts to recycle right will keep recycling workers safe, saves cities and towns money, provide high-quality raw materials to manufacturers, preserve space in the Central Landfill and more!

Madison Burke-Hindle is the Education and Outreach Manager for Rhode Island Resource Recovery which manages the state’s Central Landfill and Materials Recycling Facility. Madison is responsible for developing statewide programs on waste reduction, reuse, recycling, composting and proper disposal which are provided at no cost to RI schools, community groups and organizations. Madison enjoys connecting with Rhode Islanders to discuss what happens to their stuff when they are done with it and recently launched RI’s new waste sorting game titled “Ready, Set, Sort!” which is a fun and interactive way for residents of all ages to learn how to dispose of their waste properly. In her spare time, Madison can be found outside hiking and visiting local beaches.
