Fall Workshop & Golf Outing
October 12, 2018
Village Links of Glen Ellyn, Glen Ellyn IL

The SWANA Land of Lincoln Chapter's Fall Workshop and Golf Outing will be held October 12, 2018 at Village Links of Glen Ellyn. The morning workshop will begin at 8:30 AM, with optional 9-hole golf scramble in the afternoon.

This year's workshop will focus on the work being done by the recently formed Task Force on Reducing Recycling Contamination, co-chaired by the SWANA-Illinois Chapter and the NWRA-Illinois Chapter and including nearly 30 representatives of state and local government, recycling facility owners, and haulers.  Task Force efforts include:

  • Developing more simplified and unified recycling guidelines
  • Identifying best practices for curbside recycling cart tagging programs
  • Developing and implementing a statewide education campaign

During the workshop, the progress made by the Task Force to date will be shared. Presentations will include:

  • Introductions and Task Force information from the co-chairs
  • An overview of current recycling market conditions
  • Panel discussions from three different panels representing local government, recycling facilities, and haulers

It will take a statewide effort to make the changes needed to reduce contamination and enhance the value of recyclables. Your involvement is important, and we hope to see you at the workshop and golf outing.
