When: Sat., Nov. 6, 2 p.m. 2010
Set to be demolished and replaced next year, the El Cerrito Recycling Center is one of the West Coast's oldest municipal recycling centers -- and it began as a young man's green dream, decades ahead of its time. On Saturday, Nov. 6, in the council chambers of El Cerrito City Hall (10890 San Pablo Ave., El Cerrito), recycling center cofounder Gregg Cook lectures on its history, then leads an informative tour of the center. 2 p.m., free.
