This class is part of the NJ Recycling Certification Series.
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. By combining presentations by guest speakers 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!
