We all want to reduce our waste, but how much can we really accomplish? And for large organizations (municipalities, universities, military bases, etc.) with high and visible diversion goals, how much can we accomplish WITHOUT breaking the bank?
Join Alan Housley to explore waste diversion and its available technologies, and how you can design, measure, and implement your waste diversion programs to meet your diversion goals, meet your CO2/GHG reduction goals, AND reduce your operating costs.
In this presentation, we’ll open with a look at “zero waste”, its technologies, its challenges, and the opportunities that exist for you and your organization (with a special look at large organizations, including: municipalities, universities, and military bases). Within this discussion, Housley will outline the best practices for designing and implementing your diversion program, as well as how to best measure your diversion results to meet your diversion and CO2/GHG reduction goals. Housley will also detail available technology (e.g., on-board truck scales, GPS devices, load management software, etc.) and how you can implement it to lower operational and capital costs in your organization. Finally, Housley will present real-world examples of large organizations that have implemented successful waste diversion programs and how you can too.
If you are responsible for sustainability programs at your institution, municipality, university, or military base this webinar is for you!
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
- Understand the importance of sustainability initiatives for municipalities, military bases, and universities to reduce costs, reduce resources, reduce greenhouses gases, reduce landfill space, and increase jobs.
- Learn why timely and accurate waste diversion data is crucial for environmental sustainability and waste diversion programs.
- Gain real-world examples of how organizations have implemented recycling mandates to optimize their waste diversion and how you can to.
- Learn how to implement software automation within your current waste diversion program to increase accuracy and reduce time.
