Recycling Fair

Sat., Apr. 13, 2013 | 10 am – 3 pm

Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members, UW students, staff, and faculty with UW ID

What do the recycling numbers mean on containers? Is this odd piece of trash recyclable? Join the Burke Museum for a Recycling Fair where you can take in the Plastics Unwrapped exhibit while getting answers to all your questions from the people who make Seattle’s recycling culture the envy of the nation. Participants include Seattle Public Utilities, Waste Management, Cedar Grove Composting, and many more. 

Bring in that mystery item you have always wondered how to dispose of properly. Also enjoy free samples of compost and personal products. Bring the kids to make fashion accessories and sea creatures from recycled plastic, or compete in a recycling relay race. 

Here's a rundown of what's happening:
