    Community Partnerships Increasing Foodservice Packaging Recovery

    May 31, 2023 12:00 PM CST (Free)

    Register Here

    Since its launch in 2017, The Foodservice Packaging Institute’s (FPI’s) Community Partnership Program has impacted hundreds of communities and enabled over 5.4 million households to recycle their cups and containers.

    The program screens and assists partner communities by engaging with material recovery facilities (MRFs) and end markets to confirm how paper and plastic cups, pizza boxes, clamshells, paper bags, and aluminum trays can be recovered. Selected partner communities may also receive grant funding for recycling education and contamination prevention.

    During this webinar we will walk through the partnership approach, learn about resources available to communities, and hear about the process and impact from actual community partners.

    Speaking Panel:

    • Natha Dempsey, President, FPI (moderator)
    • Matt Todd, Sr Consultant, RRS
    • Maggie Orozco, Communications Specialist, RRS
    • Mike Csapo, General Manager, Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC)

    Busch Systems Green Thinking Webinar Series 2023

    Upcoming Webinar:
    Making an Actionable Plan: Strategic Planning to Guide Recycling & Waste Reduction Programs

    Tuesday june 13th, 2023
    1:00PM ET / 12pm CT | Free

    Recycling and waste reduction programs often begin as improvised efforts that lead to modest results. Whether aiming for zero waste or simply maximizing diversion, the complexities of large institutions like universities, corporate, government or healthcare campuses require a focused plan that addresses upstream waste generation and downstream disposal in a holistic fashion. This webinar program will combine an overview of the strategic planning process presented by the respected firm, Cascadia Consulting, followed by a case study presentation from Emory University describing the implementation process and outcomes from their 2017 strategic plan.
