Join SWANCC (the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County) for their annual Education Expo and Trashy Fashion Show! Vendors and company reps who collect and process solid waste from our area will be on hand to discuss services, answer questions and educate the community about where all that “stuff” goes when it leaves our hands, homes and businesses.  As a special treat, creative men and women with a flair for design have been asked to develop wearable pieces made from trash as part of the annual “Trashy Fashion Show”!

This year’s event will be held at Oakton Community College on Saturday, November 15 from 10am to 3pm.  This is a great chance to learn a bit more and think a bit differently. We look forward to seeing you there!

Representatives from Oakton Community College’s Green Committee will be on hand to discuss current sustainability initiatives the college is pursuing as well as to provide information on the new Science and Health Careers Center, which is scheduled to open for classes in January. A member of the committee will be leading 15-minute walking tours around the new building to discuss its sustainability features.
