12:00 to 1:00 PM WEBINAR Presentation

ADEQ: WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER 2 Rs? (Reduce and Reuse)

presented by JB Shaw, Recycling Coordinator, Arizona Dept. Of Environmental Quality (ADEQ)

We all take pride in recycling as much as we can. In these changing times that recycling has been a challenge in many cities across the nation, reduce and reuse deserve a better share in the game. ADEQ is working to help drive end market development in Arizona while also looking at regional recycling programs for rural areas. Some rural counties and towns are ready to create sustainable reuse/recycle programs and we’ll see what they are up to in the presentation. Now we all wish recycling was a staple of every community, but we need to be aware that reducing and reusing are much better for the environment and your bottom line!

  • What if you didn’t have to manage that waste in the first place? Could you require vendors in your supply chain to utilize reusable delivery options leaving you with less to manage?
  • Are you aware that there are companies right here in Arizona that would love to have your old materials rather than feeding the landfill?
  • Come join us to see what ideas are surfacing that could help build a better culture around reducing and reusing in Arizona!
  • Everything from preventing waste to sharing wastes through an online platform or donation. One’s trash might be another’s treasure. So bring your own ideas to share with the group as we work on establishing more waste diversion opportunities for our state.
  • The time is now! Reduce, don’t produce!
