    Building Community Partnerships for a Zero-Waste Approach

    Register for this Webinar 

    Thu, May 20, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT

    Within the framework of a city or town’s zero-waste initiative, businesses, community organizations, and governments at all levels have an important role to play. 

    In this webinar, we will be taking a deeper dive into key elements of what is enabling cities and towns to make measurable, meaningful improvements in reducing, recycling, and reusing including: 

    •  Key steps for building community support for a zero-waste initiative 
    •  Evidence-based solutions for changing individual behaviors 
    •  Meeting the challenges of environmental justice  

    Speakers:

    • Kanika Greenlee, Executive Director, Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission 
    • Rachel Hering, Director, Keep Texas Recycling 
    • Danielle M. Robinson, PhD, Head of Corporate Responsibility, Diageo North America

    SERIES OVERVIEW

    This Keep America Beautiful webinar series will bring together businesses, consumers, corporations, elected officials, and more, as well as Keep America Beautiful representatives to explore what a transition to zero-waste communities can look like. The series will continue the conversation that began at the Keep America Beautiful annual Vision for America event in 2020, which explored the vision around re-defining communities and how that can look in a waste-free world.

    Most of us have never experienced a pandemic before — or its consequences.

    But now, it’s time to plan for 2021 when we can get back to business. And we are taking steps to ensure your safety.

    For more than 50 years, WasteExpo has provided the industry with comradery, opportunity, the newest products and technology, and the most comprehensive education program in the industry.

    So join us at the leading solid waste and recycling event in North America. Now in June. Still in Vegas.

    WE know it’s not business as usual. But, then again, it never has been.
