Description

WNY and the world has a waste challenge. We want to talk about it!

If you’ve ever considered rethinking the way your company manages waste, you don’t want to miss this discussion. Meet us on September 24th to:

  • Get an introduction to the current recycling markets

  • Ventilate about your company’s recycling related pains & headaches

  • Share ideas with fellow WNYSBR members and others on how to best navigate your company’s recycling and waste collection needs after the China Ban

  • Join a tour of Modern’s Single Stream Recycling Facility, led by Operations Manager Fenna Mandalong & Production Manager Marcus Gibson

Many responsible companies (and individuals!) are aiming at utilizing their waste as a resource. The China Ban has presented U.S. manufacturers and service providers with a new set of challenges and opportunities. Different actors are pushing for elevating quality above quantity, adjusting to the new reality of recycling as a cost instead of paying for itself as a commodity. What are the necessary infrastructure investments? How can we all recycle better and smarter? What adjustments are needed from you and your colleagues’ part? How can your company’s needs be met?

Come and share your concerns and company needs. WNYSBR will follow up this event with a Dumpster Dive and further discussions in October.

Open to both WNYSBR Members and Non-members. Limited to 30 people, register today!


What to wear: please wear closed toe shoes with a sturdy sole.

Address: 266 Hopkins Street, Buffalo, NY 14220. Please observe that the zip code is important because there is a 266 Hopkins St in Amherst as well!

Parking: When you pull into the parking lot, park at the north end of the lot, closest to Tifft St. The visitor entrance is at that end of the building (opposite the employee entrance). Use the buzzer at the gate door to get in if you are not greeted at the door. Continue walking straight up the stairs.
