WBNR: Thursday, August 10, 2016 (11:30-12:30pm):
Education both increases participation and revenues, and reduces contamination and costs. But it’s far more than just publishing your recycling guidelines. You need to sell the community on why recycling matters, how to do it right, and most importantly, how to see their discards not as trash, but as valuable resources for your local economy. We’ll focus on the best channels to get your word out and the key messages to motivate your community, and provide effective strategies and tools.
EVNT: Friday, August 12, 2016 (9:00-1:00pm):

EPA’s Green Infrastructure program will host a webcast on August 16, 2016 from 1-2:30 PM EST titled “Lessons Learned in Green Infrastructure.”   In this webcast, speakers from EPA’s Office of Research and Development and KC Water will highlight lessons learned from green infrastructure practices. Experience with on-the-ground implementation provides a broad base for learning. This webinar will provide helpful green infrastructure lessons learned for communities, states and other practitioners across the nation.
WBNR: Thursday, August 18, 2016 (12:00-1:30 pm):
On August 18 join representatives from local programs, a hauler and MRF, MassDEP, and The Recycling Partnership as they outline their winning approach to dialing up quality. Hear the outcomes, share in the stories, and walk away with tangible tools – ready-to-implement task lists, printable graphic files, curbside SOPs, and the data to back it up – to get your stream back in tune.
