RSBN Waste Reduction/Landfill Diversion working group. After the February 2018 RSBN meeting on “Recycling and Waste,” we invited any who wanted to follow up and form a working group to answer questions and develop a waste management program. Tim Ulrich of CREE is leading the effort. Here is his report: “The RSBN Waste Reduction/Landfill Diversion work group has met twice at Cree and is focusing on the basic steps organizations can take to reduce waste generation as well as improve landfill diversion. Identifying and clarifying waste streams leaving a facility is the basic first step, to get an idea of how much of each waste stream is going to recycling vs. landfill. We have been very fortunate to have Damon Hassell of Alter Metal Recycling and Dave Doern of National Recycling on hand to provide their expertise on what materials can and cannot be readily recycled, and what collection strategies may optimize recovery. We are focusing on practical steps each organization can take to shift some percentage of their current landfill materials to recycled materials. The next meeting is not yet scheduled but we are planning to meet at another facility to continue our collaborative effort, and hope other companies can join us.” To learn more and to join this working group, contact Tim Ulrich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
