In addition to exhibits, attractions will include a raffle prize, music, and a live radio broadcast by WJBR 99.5 FM.  There will also be a craft table for children and reading programs in the nearby Wilmington Public Library. This year’s raffle prize will be a planter that stores rainwater from a downspout for use in watering plants during dry periods.

Webinar: Organic Waste Recycling 101
- Register Now!

2 p.m.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, more than 240 million tons of municipal solid waste is generated in the United States each year. Organic waste, including yard trimmings, food scraps, wood waste and paper/paperboard products, make up 2/3 of this solid waste and is the largest component. The diversion of this waste to dedicated organic waste composting facilities is critical in reducing the total amount of waste going to landfills. In addition to encouraging and educating its residents about household composting, municipalities are taking a larger role and creating the infrastructure to collect and divert organic waste for its residents, resulting in reduced tipping fees and a more sustainable community.  This webinar focuses on educating attendees about organic waste recycling and how to implement an effective program for their community. In this free webinar, you'll learn:
• What is driving the growth of organic waste recycling?
• How can organic waste recycling help reduce tipping fees?
• How can a municipality get started?
• What are the right metrics to determine success?
• Lessons learned from communities that have implemented organic waste recycling
• How to plan a pilot program
• Best practices in organic waste recycling

Public Workshop #2
5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Ocean County Library
Toms River Branch, Mancini Hall
The NJ Department of Environmental Protection's Water Quality Management Planning Rule was readopted with amendments on July 7, 2008.  The Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders, along with the Department of Planning is the designated wastewater management planning agency for the County and the portion of Monmouth County located within the Metedeconk River drainage Basin (Barnegat Bay Watershed). Ocean County has drafted its sewer service area boundaries in the County, which are proposed to be part of the Ocean County Wastewater Management Plan.  These boundaries will indicate where develop will or will not be accommodated.  The NJ DEP is holding a second public workshop in Ocean County to get public input on these draft sewer service area boundaries within Ocean County.  It is very important for the public to attend, review the maps, and comment on this process, so you play a role in shaping how development will occur in your municipality.   Pinelands Preservation Alliance, along with other environmental organizations, will be attending this workshop.For more information about the workshop and the maps already available for viewing, please visit http://www.planning.co.ocean.nj.us/watershed/wwmgt.htm

Making the Case for Solar Energy in New York
6:30 p.m.
Assembly Hall
Downstairs at the Community Church of New York
40 East 35th Street (between Park and Madison Avenues)
A presentation with Dr. Richard Perez, Senior Research Associate at SUNY Albany. 
Solar energy is often dismissed as an expensive niche market for the few, but the facts suggest that solar energy may be the only acceptable resource that is large enough in scope to carry us, and the rest of the planet through the long term. In addition, where the resource can match peak demand, short-term opportunities exist for substantial solar deployment in large cities and suburban areas of New York to effectively reduce stress on electric power grids and minimize the risk of blackouts.

NJ Recycling: Practice and Theory (6 Day Program)

Other dates: Sep. 22, Oct. 6,13,20,27
8:30am-4:00pm
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 Rutgers University continuing-education 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, much more!  For fees, registration and other information, contact Carol Broccoli at 732-932-9271 - Extension 618
