GRC Semi-Annual Training Meeting 

May 1-2, 2018 

Athens, GA – Hotel Indigo


Climate change is starting to take a toll on our communities. If we continue to face life altering storms, are we set up to be resilient?

The buzz word these days is contamination…what is it, where did we go wrong, how to eliminate it and facing the “new normal” of recycling. 

The future of glass is still a work in progress; plastics are finding a new beneficial use via technology. Organics are top of mind in the industry. HHW collection is growing as residents request more access.

Commercial, multi-family and industrial sectors generate 70% of recoverable materials; addressing those needs is critical to success of sustainable materials management.
