WEBINAR: Economic Impact Potential and Characterization of Municipal Solid Waste in Michigan

June 29, 2016 1:00 – 2:00 PMmi-msw-comp_2_1_lg-01

West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum recently partnered with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to conduct a waste audit and economic analysis of the municipal solid waste stream in Michigan. The results of that initiative were recently published by WMSBF in the report titled Solid Waste Characterization and Valuation: Opportunities for Economic and Environmental Impact.

Daniel Schoonmaker, Executive Director of WMSBF will present the project including the process WMSBF used to characterize the municipal solid waste stream, the findings, analysis and recommendations of the report. He will also discuss how municipalities, businesses and community partners are already using the data to support their recycling initiatives and educational goals, including an ambitious campaign launched by Kent County Department of Public Works in direct response to the study.

This FREE webinar will be of interest to recycling program directors, waste management and recycling professionals, waste management and recycling policy makers, anyone interested in waste and recycling in Michigan.
