Solid Waste, Recycling and Composting to Reduce Carbon – Feb. 16 Webinar Recording

This is a recording from the February 16, 2021 Webinar with special panelists, Shane Digan, Planner and Recycling Coordinator for the Otsego County Solid Waste Department and Tyson Robb, Solid Waste Coordinator in Delaware County. 

This program is a follow up from our January 5, 2021 Panel discussion program, and digs deeper into one of our Climate Action topics. This webinar looks at the work being done by our County Solid Waste Departments and how those efforts relate to a reduction in carbon emissions.

We all know that recycling is important, but do we know exactly why? What happens to the recyclable material once you put it in the recycling bin? What food composting options are available in the region and why is it important to compost? Does trash contribute to climate change (hint-yes!)? What legislation is being introduced at the state and local level to improve recycling, composting, and solid waste management generally? These are all questions this panel discussion looks to answer. Bring all of your trash, recycling, and compost questions.
