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
