TVCR sincerely thanks the panelists and audience who attended our panel discussion, "The Future of Waste and Recycling", on November 18th.

TVCR is providing an opportunity for a roundtable discussion for anyone interested in "talking trash" on Tuesday, December 16th, at 6 pm at the Chamber of Commerce in Driggs.
