Florida Tour of Counties
Join us Wednesday, February 17 at 9:00 am (EST)
and hear information from
Alachua, Indian River and Marion County
Take a tour of Florida Counties this year with Recycle Florida Today. Each month we will partner with local counties and cities to host Environmental Lunch and Learn Series (ELLS) webinars. These webinars will provide education about what local counties and cities are doing to promote and manage their programs.
Participants will be able to hear and communicate with different recycling coordinators and key stakeholders; increasing idea sharing among our industry. This will be a platform for educational professionals, recycling managers and those interested in the business of recycling to give and take from each other.
Meet the Counties:
The Alachua County Office of Waste Alternatives serves primarily as the educational branch of the Solid Waste and Resource Recovery Department. Their work encompasses a multimedia marketing campaign, educational presentations, facility tours, community events, and enforcement of the mandatory commercial recycling ordinance. This presentation aims to share some of their successes, as well as their failures, as they have navigated the ever evolving public education landscape of solid waste.
