ILSR co-Director, Brenda Platt, is speaking on a zero waste panel on June 19, 2014, at the Maryland Recycling Network’s annual conference.   Her presentation, “The State of Composting in the U.S.,” will highlight cutting edge composting programs around the country.  Management and reduction of organics in our waste streams is a hot topic for many communities and represents a key step in meeting future zero waste goals.

The Maryland Recycling Network and SWANA Mid-Atlantic Chapter have put together a two day event at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum, MD where you’ll find:

  • Technical sessions that cover the hottest topics in the industry including changing waste management and recycling models, policy & regulation, commodities markets, new technologies & more.
  • Exhibits – Come see a wide variety of products and services from vendors in the region who can help you do your job better.
  • Network with your peers – Step out of your office environment and be among those that understand what you’re faced with day in and day out.  It recharges your thinking and inspires creative approaches.  The ideas you generate could improve your program – and your career.
  • Social Events – Some of the best exchanges occur during business-related social events.  You’re not going to want to miss what this event has in store for you!
