Wishing Wells and Blue Bin Dreams: The big issue of “Wishcycling”

June 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


In this class, we will explore the common misconception of wishcycling, the economics that drives recycling choices, and how to avoid traps, greenwashing marketing, and our own misconceptions to recycle with more purpose. Attendees will gain the understanding of how Frederick County operates within the economics of recycling in addition to learning about how to make better choices for their recycling!

Paul Varga is the Communications Manager for the Division of Solid Waste and Recycling. One of his biggest pet peeves is the inconsistent messaging behind recycling, and he wants to help by using his day-to-day knowledge of Frederick County’s robust recycling program.
