This year, MassRecycle, www.massrecycle.org is excited to partner with MassDEP to combine the 5th Annual University of Resource Management Conference and the 10th Annual Organics Recycling Summit, “Local Energy Takes Root,” into two full days in early April dedicated to examining recycling and composting from garbage to revenues.The Organics Recycling Summit is the largest conference dedicated to food waste and organics recycling in New England.
The conference will teach participants how recycling and composting of solid food wastes can add to revenue streams and reduce waste at curbside. Just as recycling turns trash into revenues, composting also turns trash into a commodity worth cash.
On April 6 the conference will take place at the DoubleTree Hotel in Westborough from 8 am to 4 pm. Topics of workshops include “Collecting Food Waste at Public Events,” “Commercial Food Waste Composting Technology,” and “Anaerobic Digestion.”Â The April 7th program will be held at the New England Small Farm Institute in Belchertown, Massachusetts.Â You may register on line, or call Jessica at 617-338-0244, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
