Connect with One Big Bin on Earth Day

Published April 4, 2019

The Western Placer Waste Management Authority invites the community to join them in celebrating Earth Day for the month of April. 

WPMWA’s One Big Bin program will host a booth during the Earth Day event at the Armed Forces Pavilion and Community Garden in Auburn on Saturday, April 20, with games and contests to win exclusive apparel and prizes. They are also inviting participants to “talk trash” with One Big Bin on Facebook and Instagram to find out where they will be next.  

The WPWMA also provides free assemblies to elementary schools, called the Trash Bash Carnival, that promote recycling in western Placer County. Since the assemblies started three years ago, over 40 schools have participated. During Earth Week, April 22-26, the Trash Bash Carnival is going on a tour of area schools.

About One Big Bin
One Big Bin is a collaborative effort between the Western Placer Waste Management Authority, Placer County and its cities. Their mission is to let those who live, work and play in Placer County know about one of its best-kept secrets: the Materials Recovery Facility.  In Placer County garbage is taken to a MRF where enough recyclables are pulled out of the trash each year to fill a football field 200 feet high. It’s recycling and disposal made easy.
