Environmental Lecture Series - Waste Management: Ecological and Economical Impacts

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Over recent months, news coverage has depicted China's National Sword Policy as a crisis for recycling in municipalities all over the United States. Since early 2018, China has banned any materials diverted from the waste stream and has not accepted others unless they meet an extremely strict contamination rate. As the number of recyclables on the state list shrinks, Greenwich is stepping up their efforts in waste diversion, exploring new markets and opportunities. Could zero waste be achievable? Come learn what is coming and how you can help. Guest speakers are Julie DesChamps, from Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board (GRAB), Sherill Baldwin, CT DEEP, Ron Schulhof and Michelle Sterling, Scarsdale Forum Sustainability Committee, and Braeden Cohen, Sustainable Materials Management, Inc. Moderated by Ali Ghiorse from Waste Free Greenwich. Sponsored by Waste Free Greenwich and Conservation Commission
