Local Happening: Talkin' Trash:

I'm reading: Local Happening: Talkin' Trash:Tweet this!

I'm talkin' lots of trash--enough to make you rethink some of your wasteful habits.

There's an interesting family field trip opportunity on Saturday, June 3, from 10:00 - 1:00. SWANCC, the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County is holding their annual open house at the Glenview Transfer Station. From an enclosed viewing gallery you can watch tons of garbage get processed into bales and loaded onto trucks and shipped far away so it is somebody else's problem. I'm kidding, sort of. It's pretty fascinating and really makes you think about the amount of waste we produce...plus they have free snacks and games for the kiddos! For details see http://www.swancc.org/
