Final Agenda – Solid Waste Leadership Webinar – Conference of State Solid Waste Directors

One topic that has been the subject of much discussion in recent years has been that of disposal capacity within the region. This year’s program includes guest speakers from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, who will discuss disposal trends in their states and their state’s role as an ultimate disposal location for some of New England’s solid waste exports.

Following these presentations, the Directors will participate on a panel and discuss the future challenges of solid waste management in New England, with additional perspective from New York and Ohio focused on solid waste disposal trends in their states.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (4.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
