    The rapid growth of the recycling industry - 550% since 1989 (CalRecycle estimate) means that experienced recyclers need to continually stay up-to-date and also share knowledge with employees, job seekers, municipal staff, elected officials and community advocates.

     A quintessential exploration of the history of the recycling and Zero Waste movement, Introduction to Recycling offers both newcomers and seasoned professionals a critical overview of current concepts, practices and terminology.

    Most of each day will be spent listening to guest speakers, discussing concepts and completing thought-provoking exercises.

    Tuesday and Wednesday, January 11 and 12, 2022

    8:30 am – 12:30 pm PST, On-line, $50 per person

    Taught by former NCRA presidents Ruth Abbe and Portia Sinnott

    Group discounts available as well as 2-for-1 scholarships. No one turned away for lack of funds. All welcome – managers, employees, municipal staff, elected officials, community advocates and students.
