According to the U.S. EPA, Americans create more than 250 million tons of garbage per year. Most of this garbage is made of paper products, yard trimmings, food waste and plastics. In this webinar, we will go over the solid waste management process including recent statistics. We will look at the curbside recycling program and how many communities utilize it and how the recycling process works.
In addition, we will examine the alternatives to landfill disposal that are both environmentally protective and cost-effective for the consumer. We will look at the many new products made from recycled material and how the recycling process contributes to these.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors.

You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
