Wish-cycling & How it Harms

with Alexandria Kane


Wishful recycling, or wish-cycling, happens when you put it in your recycling bin, hoping the facility will sort it out for recycling.

Unfortunately, despite good intentions, those items do more harm than you might think. Learn about ecomaine’s recycling process and how wish-cycling has created a global problem for this industry. Bring your questions, including items you want answers about.

Alex Kane, BA in Environmental Planning & Policy from USM, is an environmental educator at ecomaine. She has a background in horticulture and received her AAS in Horticulture from SMCC. She prefers a hands-on approach to a thoroughly engaging type of learning.
