For Everybody on Earth:
Boone County Solid Waste is a government agency dedicated to the promotion of sound environmental practices. We offer reliable environmental information with no hassle and are available to come to your school or club or business or congregation and speak. We educate about: litter, illegal dumping, landfill design, government's role in solid waste management, the four R's (reduce, reuse, recycle, re-buy), composting, and human impact on the environment. We are even capable of creating a presentation based on your specific needs. We have programs suitable for any age, from pre-school to post-retirement.
