Houston Recycling: Where Are We ?

Houstonians are talking about recycling these days. There are a lot of questions: How does it work? Who can participate? What can be recycled? How much does it cost? How does Houston's program compare to other cities? What happens to the recycled materials? Why can't everything be recycled? This seminar (held in a recycled 1916 vintage warehouse) will provide access to people who can answer all those questions for both residential and commercial customers.

Speakers:

Harry Hayes, Director, City of Houston Solid Waste Department

Mark Austin, proprietor, WeCanRecycle.org

Amanda Beard, Sales Manager, Waste Management Recycling Services

Keith Koski, Manager, City of Houston ReUse Warehouse

Director Harry Hayes will talk about the City of Houston residential side, Mark Austin will cover the small commercial side, Amanda Beard will talk about the large commercial side and their new MRF (and explain what a MRF is) and Keith Koski will talk about reusing building materials in Houston.
