Updates and Working Group Meeting Schedules


It's hard to believe that the Working Groups have completed their fourth round of meetings after a very successful Mid-Point Check-In meeting for the full Connecticut Coalition for Sustainable Materials Management (CCSMM) on November 16, 2020.

DEEP recently received coverage in the Patch regarding the waste crisis and the efforts of the CCSMM to rethink the waste system. We encourage you to share this coverage within your networks, social media or otherwise, using the hashtag #RethinkWasteCT.

Please find below registration links for upcoming meetings and recordings from recent Working Group meetings.
