The symposium will feature keynote speakers Bob Gedert, Director of Resource Recovery in Austin, Texas, and Neil Seldman, President of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance from Washington, DC. Bob and Neil have a wealth of experience in designing and implementing recycling and resource recovery programs in cities across the country. To learn more about Austin’s terrific “zero waste program,” you can visit: http://www.austintexas.gov/sites/default/files/files/Trash_and_Recycling/MasterPlan_Final_12.30.pdf
We’ll also feature local experts on composting and recycling, and will learn about the status and plans for recycling programs in Cleveland and across the county.
Please bring your neighbors, your notebooks, and your ideas for how we can move our city forward in creative and practical ways, both at the neighborhood and city-wide level.
