We are in full-on conference planning mode, and we hope to see you at the big event, June 8-10! Please consider registering today for all or part(s) of the conference. From our informative and fun tour in Broad Ripple, to our opening night reception featuring local artists, to great speakers, awesome exhibitors, an e-waste workshop and the best recycling networking in Indiana, we've got you covered!
We are particularly excited to welcome the Recycling Partnership - a new, privately-funded national program to support community collection infrastructure with grants and a wide range of other resources! We are also hosting a panel discussion on the controversial dirty MRF plan for Indianapolis. Recycling industry stakeholders from across the country are very concerned about this plan, and conference attendees will have access to the very latest on this hot topic.
In addition to planning the conference, we've been busy helping the 500 Fest deliver top-notch public space recycling for the Mini Marathon and Kids' Day events (stay tuned for data from those events!), launching our new scholarship programs (details below), attending the Plastics Recycling Conference and Paper Spec Summit in Dallas, as well as the National Recycling Coalition's Sustainable Materials Management Summit in Maryland, and much more.
As you read through our newsletter, please let us know if there is anything else you would like to receive in this bi-monthly e-publication. We are always striving to deliver the most relevant content for you in order to help you do the important work of waste reduction and recycling within your communities, businesses and organizations.
