Are you responsible for managing your organization’s or community’s waste management program?  Struggling to keep up with what can be recycled?  Frustrated by low diversion rates and limited reporting by your waste hauler?”

Join Sustainable Pittsburgh for this morning workshop that pulls back the curtain on waste and recycling options for businesses, organizations, and municipalities located in southwestern PA.

Local waste management experts and sustainability pros will share updates on recycling and waste management markets, along with best practices for establishing a program, forming a waste hauler contract, getting employees and community citizens on board, and more.  Stick around to see responsible waste management in action during an optional tour of PNC Park and the Pittsburgh Pirates’ cleaning operations immediately following the workshop.

Attendees will gain free access to the new Material and Waste Management Resource Guide for Southwestern PA, a project of Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Champions for Sustainability network.
