Organics processors, composters, haulers, regulators, academics,  organics waste management professionals, sustainable community organizations, and nonprofits will join the conversation about New Jersey’s organics management practices. The Summit will feature experienced industry professionals, academics and regulators on topics of:

  • State and city food waste initiatives and climate change programs
  • The role and how to work with compostable packaging
  • Compost facility management (economics, PFAS, new techniques)
  • Funding and operating climate friendly organics businesses

Keynoting the event will be Dr. Lily Pollens, author of Resisting Garbage: The Politics of Waste Management in American Cities. A PhD in city planning from MIT, Dr. Pollens examines how cities can adopt waste management reforms to defy pressure towards disposability. Her work traces the complications and potential that urban-scale resistance generates, and finds reason for optimism in some subtle, yet radical, choices that city governments are making around the world.
