MOORHEAD — From 1:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, Clay County Solid Waste and the city of Moorhead will host a waste sort at the Moorhead Transfer Station, 2727 Highway 10 E. Volunteers are needed to help at the event.

At the event, participants will sort through the trash, learn about the waste stream, record data and witness the amount of recyclables and organics in the trash. The sort aims to gain information about the amount of organics being sent to the landfill and assist in measuring the effectiveness of the recycling program.

Volunteers should wear old clothes and closed-toed shoes. The county will provide personal protective gear.
