Are you doing all you can to cut down on the amount of waste going into landfills? Are you ever confused about your choices and about which choices really matter? We live here because we care for the natural environment that surrounds us, yet we can’t seem to get even close to zero waste. Kari Parcell, Barnstable County’s Regional Waste Reduction Coordinator has deep knowledge of recycling practices supported by all 23 Cape and Island municipalities and knows what is working . . . and what’s not.  She will share insights into current markets and local recycling programs that will help us each become a better recycler.


As the Municipal Assistance Coordinator for Cape and Islands, Kari Parcell provides technical assistance to the region’s 23 municipalities on solid waste management, reduction, and diversion. She is also co-owner of ReFashion Chatham Consignment & Savvy Thrift and an Adjunct Professor at Mass Maritime Academy in Buzzard’s Bay.
