Greenville, OH. September 27, 2012 What happens to the garbage in your neighborhood? Where does it go after you throw it away? What can you do to reduce the amount of trash going into the landfill? Landfills are expensive to build, take up space and pose risks to the environment, particularly water and groundwater.

The Greenville Business & Professional Women’s (BPW) Club Guest Night Committee has invited Krista Fourman, Director of Darke County Solid Waste to be their featured speaker. Krista will discuss how landfills are made and what safety precautions are taken when building a landfill. To enhance her presentation, Krista will create the “Edible Landfill”. In addition to discussing the creation of landfills, Fourman will discuss some of the district’s most popular recycling events and programs. This event is open to the public. Those attending are asked to bring empty Pringles cylinders or containers and clean empty baby food jars for a Solid Waste Recycling project.

The dinner meeting on Thursday, October 11, 2012 is to start at 6:30 PM at a cost of $10.00. The location is in the Chestnut Village at the Brethren Retirement Community, 750 Chestnut Street, Greenville, OH. Reservations need to be made by noon on Monday, October 8, 2012 by calling Susan Fowble at 937/548-1414.

The Greenville BPW Club’s mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information. The Club holds fund raisers throughout the year to raise money to grant scholarships to Darke County senior high school girls.
