The Green Team is composed of City of Saginaw employees committed to educating and motivating others to recycle and care for the environment.
The Open House will consist of various representatives with static displays. Trees for Tri-Cities, our partner in being a “Tree City USA,” will be on hand to discuss the importance of replenishing trees. The Saginaw County Health Department will be onsite to discuss light bulb and mercury disposal; likewise, the Community Prescription Support Program will be present to discuss appropriate prescription disposal. Representatives will be available to demonstrate how to remove hard drives containing personal information from computers prior to disposal, with demonstrations scheduled at 11:30 am and 12:30 pm. Also in attendance will be Iris Waste Diversion, Mid-Michigan Waste Authority, and Batteries Plus. Refreshments will be provided and tree seedlings will be given to the first 50 attendees in celebration of Arbor Day.
Tyrone Harge, Chairman of The Green Team added, “Solutions reside in us. The participation of Saginaw’s citizens and employees is paramount to any successful program, no matter how large or small the problems appear. The Green Team’s purpose is to reclaim our area from garbage through recycling. Come join us Tuesday, April 23, 2013 as we continue our quest to ‘Educate to Motivate.’ Reclaim, Reuse, Recycle.”
