Carolina Recycling Association Conference and Trade Show Recycling’s Many Shades of Green The Hilton North Raleigh Educational sessions to look forward to:
-- Monday, March 24 – Where is “away?” - A Municipal Solid Waste workshop featuring Project Learning Tree Everyone knows our waste goes "away" when we dispose or recycle it. But where is "away?” This workshop will give you a hands-on look at "away." You will also receive multiple lessons about solid waste and recycling, hear from experts in the field, and walk away with recycling freebies you can use with your school or organization. Participants will also receive the PLT Pre K-8 Activity Guide and the PLT Secondary Module Municipal Solid Waste to help implement what they have learned into their classroom/programs. Workshop qualifies for Criteria I of EE Certification and CEU renewal credits.
-- Tuesday, March 25 – Sustainable Schools Learn about school recycling (easy and difficult materials) via different communities, gain insight into funding these green programs and help your transportation and custodial department become sustainable. Information will be provided about performance measures, data tracking and engaging students. Group discussion/networking time will also be available so you can learn from others in the room.
-- Wednesday, March 26 – Social Marketing experts from across the nation Come to this session to learn about the most cutting-edge social marketing strategies from national experts.
