Save the Date! Sept. 12 Responsible Waste Management Workshop


Wednesday, September 12
8:00 am – 11:00 am (Breakfast and registration at 7:30 am)
Location TBA

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.

Who should attend:

– Professionals in sustainability, operations, and facilities management from business, nonprofits, universities and other institutions

– Managers, staff, and elected officials from local governments

– Citizens advocating for responsible waste management programs in their schools and communities

Presented by Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Champions for Sustainability in collaboration with Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Sustainable Community Development Network.

Additional details and registration forthcoming!
