Why:  Some say you should only recycle after all waste elimination and reuse options have been ruled out. If recycling is our panacea, why have recycling rates remained flat despite a perceived growing awareness? Landfills are full, incineration is out, what are we doing with our stuff – from food to pharmaceuticals, from electronics to Styrofoam? Can you connect the dots between solid waste and climate change?
To start the fall, we plan to push the boundaries of familiarity to explore:
- Legislation/Regulation – its challenges, achievements and unintended consequences
- Zero Waste – Is it really zero?
- Product stewardship’s role in waste reduction
- Handling textiles at their end-of-life
- A Day in the Life of a “Fancy Trashman”
