Weathering the Storms – Creating Resilient Recycling Programs
Tuesday, December 5th
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
MSU Kellogg Center
Once again recycling programs find themselves at the mercy of changes in overseas markets. These and on-going funding challenges prevent communities from investing in programs and limit growth and success in communities with existing programs.
Get a better understanding of the current state of affairs in relation to market disruptions, pending legislation, and the role of local government in assuring service provision at this year’s Fall Into Recycling: Weathering the Storms.
Public sector program managers with and without recycling programs, elected officials, solid waste and recycling service providers, and businesses with interest in recycling programs would benefit from the workshop topics.
Learn about policy tools and program components that assure the delivery of valued services and make good programs more resilient to winds of change. Learn about the Hub and Spoke Model of infrastructure development and service provision and how it can guide the development of Michigan’s recycling network. Learn how to communicate effectively with regional recycling partners and decision-makers to deliver consistent and coherent recycling messages that resonate.
Fall Into Recycling is a Michigan Recycling Coalition educational workshop designed to inform and support public and private sector program managers and service providers. Anyone interested in learning more about the industry and it’s contribution to the state and local economies will benefit from learning more about these topics.
