Come join the Mercer County Conservation District in cooperation with Buhl Farm Park and the Hermitage Food Waste to Energy Facility for a day designed to celebrate Earth Day.  This year’s focus in on reducing and re-using items when possible. There will be 2 stations for the day: one shedding light into how to conserve and reduce waste touching upon recycling today, how to reduce waste, and ways to re-use items. The other will be a tour of the Hermitage Food Waste to Energy Facility ran by the City of Hermitage that utilizes food waste and the methane by-product, making it into usable energy. It is world renowned, yet many in our area are not aware of this truly unique facility.
