Commissioner Sandra Romero Hosts Monthly Coffees with Area Residents
“Please join Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero, as she hosts her monthly informal coffee hours in Rainier, Yelm and Lacey on Monday, March 22nd.
This months coffee will focus on the countys Solid Waste Department.
Come find out how to reduce the amount of waste you generate, how to give products a second life, and how to know what can and cant be recycled. Our special guest will be Thurston County Solid
Waste Education and Outreach Specialist, Terri Thomas.
‘For the last 24 years, Thurston County commissioners have personally hosted an annual pancake breakfast for the public at the Thurston County Fairgrounds. Last year, we decided to try for Zero Waste. The amount of garbage left over from serving more than 400 breakfasts was so minimal that it fit into one small container about the size of a microwave oven, and this years will be even better.’
These coffees give you the opportunity to talk about issues, ask questions about the county, and share ideas. Commissioner Romero provides to participants coffee that she pays for herself. She is the
representative of District 2, which includes Yelm, Lacey, and Rainier,” quoting the Commissioner’s Press Release.
