environmental education made easy

With themes like "Building the Future" and "Navigating Global Conditions," this year's solid waste and recycling conferences aim to keep us abreast of the hot topics in solid waste and recycling. 

At SWANApalooza in Boston this week, I  am helping to facilitate a hands-on session to address contamination in community recycling programs.  The Recycling Partnership is leading this workshop which will present best practices proven to decrease contamination and increase recycling rates.  Heading into spring, I will also attend SWANA's Western Regional Symposium  in California and Waste Expo in Las Vegas. Check out some of the hot topics these conferences will address below.

We realize that time and budget constraints do not allow everyone to travel to conferences, so we are happy to share what we learn! And, we would love to work with you to communicate your hot topic messages. Please give me a call or  email me !
Hope to hear from you soon!

In addition to contamination in collected recyclables, here are other hot topics which will be addressed at conferences I am attending soon.

Stepping up to the Plate: What Food Recovery Will Really Look Like

No surprise to see that China's influence on our recycling markets is still a topic for discussion, along with addressing food waste and the plastic straw! 
What are the hot topics you want to address? We would be happy to research them and their specific impacts on your solid waste and recycling programs so we can help you educate your community.
