The Nuts & Bolts to Starting a Glass Recycling Program in a Rural Area – June 29, 11 – 12 eastern
If you are interested in starting and maintaining a glass recycling program, join us for this webinar to hear the experiences of two rural regions in Maine that recently developed their glass recycling programs. The webinar presenters will talk about their experiences in and strategies for: developing and running the glass recycling programs, gaining residents' interest in glass recycling, identifying staffing and equipment requirements, accessing funds to support their program needs, identifying end markets for post-consumer glass and decision making about crushing the glass or marketing it as whole containers, and planning for the future to grow their programs.
