Making it Work: Improving Your Collection Programs
Food represents a huge portion of the remaining disposal stream, and the largest opportunity for progress in both the residential and commercial sector. Which are the most effective –and cost-effective –options? We recently conducted a series of residential and commercial projects in states across the nation, geared toward exploring the best options. We examined the best performers and examples in the following areas:
•Bans, mandates, and State legislation
•Strategies to address siting complications
Whether or not one has already implemented a program, is just thinking about a program, or does not know the first thing about food scraps recovery, this presentation will share information designed to help spur the growth of these programs using lessons learned from other communities to become as successful and sustainable as possible.
What attendees will get from the session:
Outcomes / Lessons: Attendees will take home reliable, transferable information to guide specific decision-making on organics collection programs –guidance that is based on quantitative analysis of real-world, operating programs and their performance.
