Fresno's Department of Public Utilities started their social media accounts back in April, and they've answered questions and made suggestions for reducing waste and re-using items with their posts.

Do you know what can and can’t be recycled? Which bin do you use for your Starbucks cups, your wrapping paper or your greasy pizza box? We wondered, where does everyone go to find these answers? So we sat down with the expert behind Fresno’s Public Utilities Instagram, Xitlaly Ocampo. Ocampo takes questions through the account about what can and can't be recycled, and reminds the public about things like where to recycle batteries, or whether a Christmas tree goes in the green bin.

 

Listen to the interview above to hear Ocampo explain where to find those answers and more.
