"Let’s Talk Trash!" event helps Chatham residents rethink waste habits

The old saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” and the meaning behind this message was effectively underscored during Chatham County’s first-ever Earth Day celebration: “Let’s Talk Trash!” Over 40 local businesses, artists, and nonprofits promoted programs and activities related to reusing, recycling, composting, and cleaning up litter during the “Let’s Talk Trash!” event held April 30, 2011, at Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) in Pittsboro.
