Tossed & Found – Visit the Tossed and Found and find out ways to make use of trash. Many items disposed of at the transfer station could be reused, recycled, or composted. For two months leading up to the Recycled Arts Festival, useful items are collected from the garbage received at the transfer station and displayed at the Tossed and Found exhibit. Come see what gets thrown away and get inspired to create, donate, recycle, compost, and make use of trash! Children can come enjoy an upcycled-craft play-table and recycling game. After the festival, reusable items will be donated to the Humane Society’s ReTails Thrift Store. Make sure to pick up a copy of the Clark County Thrift Store Map! The Tossed and Found Experience is brought to the festival by Waste Connections of Washington, Inc. and Columbia Resource Company.
