The N.C. Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance will be conducting an event/venue recycling webinar on August 25th. With the upcoming plastic bottle disposal ban (effective Oct. 1, 2009), it is even more important that we remove this material from our waste stream. Not to mention how valuable plastic bottles are for area recycling markets. The new plastics recycling facility in Spartanburg, S.C. is hungry for material.
Join us on August 25th to learn more about recycling at special events and various venues. The webinar is free and will be held from 10 a.m.-Noon.

What do we mean by Venue and Special Event recycling? We’re referring to indoor and outdoor sports arenas, stadiums, concert venues and civic centers. We also mean those outdoor special events you hold each year for your communities, such as Earth Day events, festivals, fairs, races and the like. Or you might want to get recycling set up at your local little league soccer, football and baseball fields. Even parks and recreational facilities have similar challenges and can learn from this workshop. You get the idea!
