    We are pleased to announce the second Zero Food Waste Forum to be held October 16, 2018 in Berkeley, California, hosted by the Northern California Recycling Association and the Solid Waste Association of North America Gold Rush Chapter.

    The purpose of the Forum is to help local jurisdictions understand the direction and intentions of Senate Bill 1383 (2016), which requires that no less than 20 percent of edible food currently disposed of in California is recovered for human consumption by 2025, and where we need to go.  

    The Forum will profile successful policies and programs in food waste prevention and reduction and edible food re-purposing and recovery, highlight regional and statewide examples and provide a forum for innovative approaches to reduce wasted food and feed hungry people. There will be time for break out sessions in which to delve more deeply into these subjects with presenters and colleagues.

    Check out the Program for the schedule.

    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.

    Since 1995, NCRA has made this easy by offering Introduction to Recycling, a three-day, 16-hour course - approximately 30 times. 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. We will also have facility tours hosted by Recology San Francisco.
