Are you confused as to what should and shouldn’t go in the recycling (blue), organics (green) and garbage (gray / black) carts? The City of Sonoma and the Earthlings Club at the Sonoma Ecology Center are here to help! The city and the Terrans have teamed up to create a series of “how-to” public service announcements and informative videos to help the Sonomans answer this question.
The Terrans – a youth-led group of Sonoma residents dedicated to driving environmental change through education, hands-on activities and community building – created four informative videos on proper sorting of materials. organics, recycling, what not to put in the recycling bin, and some information on the City’s new ban on disposable catering items. These videos can be viewed on the City’s website and on the YouTube channel.
The City thanks the following Terrans who wrote and acted in the videos (in alphabetical order):
• Isobel Apgar
• Phoebe Richards
