Learn how to “green” your home and Phoenix neighborhood

[Source: City of Phoenix] — Have you ever wondered what happens to your garbage once it’s picked up by the city?  Do you know what kind of trees to plant at your home and where? These and other environmental-related questions will be addressed to provide residents practical tips to “green” their homes and neighborhood during a free summit from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 20, at the 27th Avenue Solid Waste Facility, 3060 S. 27th Ave.

Other items that will be reviewed include recycling, household waste, urban forestry, water conservation, and energy conservation.

The summit is coordinated by the Neighborhood Services Department, with staff participation from the Public Works, Parks and Recreation, and Water Services departments, and Office of Environmental Programs.  “There are so many simple and easy things people can do in and around their homes to help the environment and help themselves,” said Jerome Miller, Neighborhood Services director.  “Hopefully, this summit will inspire them to take productive action.”  For more information or to register, call 602-534-8444.
