About this event

The NJ Composting Council and the Rutgers EcoComplex are pleased to announce the 2022 Organics Waste Management Summit: Compost - Climate Change Connection

Organics processors, composters, haulers, regulators, academics,  organics waste management professionals, sustainable community organizations, and nonprofits are invited to join the conversation about New Jersey’s organics management practices.

Keynoting the event will be Dr Lily Pollens author of Resisting Garbage: The Politics of Waste Management in American Cities . A PhD in city planning from MIT, Dr Pollens examines how cities can defy pressure towards disposability through waste management reforms. In her work, she traces the complications and potential that such urban-scale resistance generates, and finds reason for optimism in some subtle, yet radical, choices that city governments are making around the world.

The Summit will host panels featuring experienced industry professionals, academics and regulators on topics of:

  • State and city food waste initiatives and climate change programs
  • The role and how to work with compostable packaging
  • Compost facility management (economics, PFAS, new techniques)
  • Funding and operating climate friendly organics businesses

Join us early for a continental breakfast, and then stay for a fantastic day of learning, lunch and networking all complimentary with your ticket.

Also be sure to visit our exhibitors to learn about some great organics recycling businesses in the state!

USCC Professional certification credits and Rutgers Recycling Continuing education credits will be available for attendees. 

NJ State and Rutgers COVID policies will be honored. We will provide additional updates as they become available.
