Join in on the discussion about the NIH recycling program at the Re-Forum. You are invited to openly speak about your thoughts and concerns before a panel of subject matter experts from DEP and Montgomery Co. SORRT Program. Those who participated in the 2012 Recycling Survey are strongly encouraged to attend. Over-arching comments made in that survey will be the guide of our discussion. 
Take Charge winners will be announced. These NIH employees speak up, lead by example, and put progressive ideas into action. Come hear about how they made a difference in their workplace.
Also, want a mini-trash bin? We will be giving them out!
These events are hosted by the NEMS Green Teams Lead Council, a council representing the Green Teams of all NIH ICs.  For more information email green@mail.nih.gov or call 301-496-7990.
