Food Scrap Recycling Programs for Businesses - Montgomery County Business Recycling Seminar
Montgomery County, Maryland has a goal to reduce waste and recycle 70 percent of all waste generated by 2020. Recycling is also the law in Montgomery County and all businesses, regardless of type of business or size, are required to recycle. Based on the most recent waste composition study completed by the Division of Solid Waste Services, food scraps account for nearly 25 percent of the commercial waste stream.
Your business is invited to attend this business recycling seminar to:
- Meet with County staff and get all of your recycling questions answered;
- Tour a food scrap recycling program at a business;
- Get tips on ways to create a successful food scrap recycling program at your business;
- Obtain the most updated versions of educational materials available for businesses to educate your staff, vendors and customers.
This event is a unique opportunity to network with other local business owners, managers, and employees and learn more about the benefits of recycling food scraps and other items, and waste reduction, as well as the services provided by the Montgomery County SORRT Program.
