Get ready for some trash talk just in time for Earth Day.

Orange Coast College's Recycling Center Director Mike Carey is giving a lecture on "You Are What You Trash: the 3 R's of Recycling" at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the OCC Library Lecture Room, 2701 Fairview Road.

Carey was the first recipient of the Award for Environmental Excellence from the Costa Mesa Sanitary District. The program is sponsored by the OCC Friends of the Library.

A donation of $5 or a gently used book is requested. All proceeds go toward the OCC library.
