NSAC: Business-Driven Solutions to Organics Recycling
On Friday, March 12, from 8:30am to 10:00 am, join the National Stewardship Action Council for a webinar, How to Make Money from Saving the World: Business-Driven Solutions to Organics Recycling. Governments across the United States are trying to determine how to manage organics with evolving and complicated rules and pressure to move fast to reduce methane release and preserve organics and topsoil. Some states, like California, have passed laws requiring organics disposal reduction. Now, businesses and municipalities are racing to keep up with new mandates when permitting and funding the facilities can be very time consuming and costly. On this webinar, you will hear from local governments that manage organics and are responsible to meet diversion targets, and the collectors and processors of the organics on new technologies that may provide the solutions you need.  The panelists will discuss their views of the problems and offer solutions. Be sure to register today!
