Dinner http://klcc.org en Whitaker Dinner Reducing Waste Through Reusable Utensils http://klcc.org/post/whitaker-dinner-reducing-waste-through-reusable-utensils <p>The annual <a href="http://wcdinner.org/">Whitaker Dinne</a>r is trying to reduce its material waste, and has taken a big step towards doing so through reusable silverware.&nbsp;</p><p>The Lane County Master Recycler program came up with the idea of acquiring metal utensils about 3 years&nbsp; ago and finally reached their goal last month. 3,000 forks, 1,500 knives and 1,200 spoons have been collected to be used by the more than 2,000 people who attend the banquet. Coordinator Kelly Bell is glad to have their own set after relying on others for so long.</p> Mon, 25 Nov 2013 19:34:57 +0000 Graham Sprague 3659 at http://klcc.org Whitaker Dinner Reducing Waste Through Reusable Utensils
