#ELGL16 PDX: Recycling Reconsidered

Recycling Reconsidered: Whole Life Cycle Materials Management









With #ELGL16 knocking on our doors, it’s time for an introduction to our speaker panels. Having trouble deciding which panel to choose? This will make it even harder!

What’s that all about?

Ever wonder where Oregon is headed in thinking about the lifecycle of the materials we use? Learn about the statewide approach to materials management, get your hands dirty in a discussion about the City of Eugene’s Love Food Not Waste® commercial compost program, and find out how you don’t have to go it alone with a peek at the City’s public private partnership for marketing a compost product.

Do tell who tells?
