Recycling Practice and Theory

(6-Day Program)

Course Code: ER0111CA20

2010-2012 Recycling Catalog
Date & Time

Last Held: September 26 and October 3, 10, 16, 24, and 31, 2019
8:30am - 3:45pm (Check in time on Day 1: 8:00am)


Recycling has evolved from something that we do just because it is environmentally sound to something that has substantial economic and sustainability benefits as well.  Through hands-on activities and field visits to solid waste and recycling facilities across the state, this course will show you how recycling can become "asset management" and a vital part of your organization's operations.  You will learn how to perform a waste audit, understand recycling markets, increase participation rates, put efficiency to work for you, and much more!  

Note: Days 1 and 6 will be held at Rutgers Cook Campus in New Brunswick; Days 2-5 will involve organized field trips to recycling and/or solid waste facilities in the  NY-NJ-PA area.


In addition to 3.6 Rutgers CEUs, this recycling certification course has been approved for the following credits:
