2018 Business Recycling Seminar: Make Waste Reduction and Recycling a Core Value at Your Business

Registration is now closed.

Montgomery County, Maryland has a goal to reduce waste and recycle 70 percent of all waste generated by 2020. The SORRT (Smart Organizations Reduce and Recycle Tons) Program, part of the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Solid Waste Services, provides businesses, commercial properties, non-profit organizations, and government facilities with education, training, and technical assistance to maximize on-site waste reduction, reuse, and recycling efforts.

At the seminar, you will:

  • Engage with managers from businesses who have significantly increased their recycling and waste reduction efforts
  • Learn what you can do at your business or facility to reduce waste, reuse materials, recycle more, and make recycling and waste reduction a part of your day-to-day operations
  • Obtain educational materials, including posters, brochures, and labels, to educate your employees and customers about your recycling program
  • Get your recycling questions answered

Why Attend?
