Learn what you should be putting in the recycle bin in this how to NPO Showcase.

NPO Showcase


NPO Showcase is just one of the many ways that the Community Media Center serves the nonprofit community. For information about this and other CMC services for nonprofits, or to schedule a future interview, contact Nonprofit Outreach Coordinator, Anna Geurkink, at 616-459-4788 x105 or email [email protected].


Anna Geurkink sits down with Resource Recovery Specialist, Lauren Westerman, from the Kent County Department of Public works to talk about proper recycling techniques, and discuss what and what not to put in our recycling bins.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.
