Waste Management Series Part 5: Financial Implications


10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


CCM and the Housatonic Resources Recovery Authority are excited to partner for a six part series, Waste Management and Recycling in Connecticut. 

This series will provide an education on the basics of what’s currently happening to Connecticut's waste and recycling, how it is managed, where it is going, and what capacity currently is available. 

These trainings will serve as a tool to help Connecticut leaders begin to look towards the future of creating a sustainable waste management system.


Over the last several webinars in our Waste Management series the conversation of government collection vs private industry has weaved through each discussion. During Part 4 we learned about how the private industry has created ways to manage materials in Connecticut through source separation.  In Part 5 we bring back a collection of panelists as well as new to discuss how as a state we can leverage these and other resources and opportunities in a practical and sustainable way at the municipal level.
