Join RecyclingWorks on March 7 at Wellesley College in Room 413 of the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center for the 2019 College & University (C&U) Forum. These forums are particularly useful for facility managers, dining service operators, and recycling and sustainability coordinators to network and discuss waste diversion efforts on campuses throughout the state.

This year’s forum featuring Wellesley College, UMass Amherst, and Clark University will focus on best practices to prevent contamination in recycling collected from public spaces and dormitory areas on campus.

If you are unable to attend in-person, you can also join us through the webinar that will be broadcast from the event.

The Forum will be streamed in two parts: from 9:00am – 11:00am and from 11:15am – 12:00pm on March 7.
