The Resource Recycling Conference is THE recycling conference of the year. The 2017 Conference was held in Minneapolis MN, August 27-30 and not only were Emmet County Recycling staff there, but our Director, Elisa Seltzer was on a panel that presented to the entire conference audience.
Based on the strength of our policy foundation, our comprehensive programs, and the quantities of material recovered (thanks to our fantastic customers!) Elisa was invited to speak as part of the Wednesday Plenary Session. The topic was “Hacking Recycling – Tools and Tricks for Your Program.” After briefly describing our county and region and giving an overview of our recycling systems, she emphasized some of the innovative policy, funding, and outreach tools that have been central to our success.
