On Wednesday, November 15th at 2 pm (EST), The Composting Collaborative will host the second installment of its monthly webinar series. Nora Goldstein of BioCycle Magazine and Brenda Platt and Virginia Streeter of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance will present: Illuminating Growth in Composting Access + Processing Through Data.

This webinar is free. Register here.

The webinar will focus on two of the industry’s most robust efforts to collect data on areas critical to understanding the landscape of both organics recycling processing capacity, as well as residential access to municipal curbside organics collection programs.

Nora Goldstein, Editor of BioCycle Magazine, will explain BioCycle’s 2017 State of Organics Recycling In the U.S., which presents composting and anaerobic digestion (AD) infrastructure data, along with details on tons of organics recycled and state programs and policies that support composting and AD. The information is a “snapshot in time” of states’ organics recycling activities.

Brenda Platt, Co-Director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), and Virginia Streeter, Research Associate for ILSR’s Composting for Community project, will preview the methodology and findings of BioCycle’s 2017 Residential Food Waste Collection Access In The U.S., a periodic survey of municipal curbside and drop-off organics collection programs, Brenda and Virginia will explore the quantitative and qualitative changes since the survey was last conducted in 2015.
