The New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR) hosts the 3rd Annual New York State Organics Summit. This yearly event engages stakeholders from across the state in facilitative discussion aimed at developing creative solutions to barriers that restrict the sustainable management of organic materials (i.e., food scraps, landscaping debris, manure, etc.). The end goal is to significantly increase diversion of organics from landfills by increasing donations of edible food, and by increasing organics recycling through composting, anaerobic digestion, and other processes.
This year’s summit will focus on the challenges of collection and hauling of organics. Other topics will include emerging technologies, food recovery, circular systems, citizen engagement, and more. Participating in the summit is an opportunity to connect with NYS materials management professionals from a variety of sectors, and to develop innovative organics management strategies for your community.
