Thank you to local recyclers and health educators

Thank you to the presenters last night who spoke at our Pollution Prevention Speaker Night at the Superior Public Library:
Bonnie Beste (City of Superior Community Policing Officer),
George Winston (owner of Afterlife Electronics Graveyard - ewaste recycler/collection site in Superior),
Vicki Drake (public health educator and chair of the NW Wisconsin Lead Free Task Force) and
Dr. Emily Onello (faculty member of UMD Medical School and physician at Lake Superior Community Health Center).

Each shared their knowledge and provided local information and numbers of tons of medical waste coming in, tons of recycling of materials from televisions, and information on issues relating to lead exposure and exposure to minute particulates in air.

Their presentations were recorded and will be put up on Superior Community Television.
