TARRYTOWN RECYCLES FOOD SCRAPS

LEARN: MONDAY, FEB. 11, 7 PM

Learn about the Village’s newest, free program.

Keep your food scraps out of the garbage can, and instead, bring them to the food scrap drop-off area. You’ll be reducing Tarrytown’s carbon footprint, while turning your heavy food scraps into valuable, nutrient rich compost.

The process is simple, but you can learn more about it at the Warner Library on Monday, February 11th at 7pm.

Lindsay Cohen of the Greenburgh Nature Center will lead the discussion.

The Warner Library is at 121 North Broadway in Tarrytown, and the presentation will be on the 2nd Floor.

This event is sponsored by The Greenburgh Nature Center, Tarrytown Environmental Advisory Council, and the Warner Library.

 

CARBON HAS A COST

LEARN: THURSDAY, JAN. 24, 7 PM

How do we most fairly price carbon?

We know that the public costs of burning fossil fuels are enormous, but the market prices of carbon-intensive products and services don’t reflect that reality. So, how do we most fairly price carbon?

On Thursday, January 24th at 7 pm, join the Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Gaylord Holmes for his presentation, “The Best Solution for Reducing Climate Change: Carbon Fee and Dividend”.

We welcome you to the Warner Library 2nd Floor, 121 North Broadway, Tarrytown. The presentation is free and open to the public, and sponsored by Federated Conservationists of Westchester County (FCWC), TEAC and the Warner Library.
