A series of edu­ca­tional pro­grams for chil­dren spon­sored by the town, the North­eastern Uni­ver­sity Marine Sci­ence Center, and Nahant Swim Inc. (Safer Waters in Mass­a­chu­setts) kicked off an ini­tia­tive aimed at encour­aging and edu­cating res­i­dents about recy­cling. “People don’t know what they can recycle,” said Vi Patek, Nahant Swim pres­i­dent, who said the orga­ni­za­tion plans to send out a mailing to res­i­dents this fall that will high­light infor­ma­tion on the town web­site, www​.nahant​.org , and also broad­cast a video­tape of a humorous but edu­ca­tional skit on the town’s cable channel. For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Patek at swimnahant@​verizon.​net or at 781–598-1060.
