Our sustainability coordinator, Tim Trefzer, was recently a featured speaker at the Georgia Recycling Coalition Annual Conference on St. Simons Island. The theme of the conference was “Recycling – Coming of Age…reaching maturity, respectability and prominence,” and it was the organization’s 21st annual conference, trade show and membership meeting.
Tim spoke about the Georgia World Congress Center Authority’s campus-wide recycling efforts, how it has grown, how we have improved and challenges we are addressing.
In FY 12, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority campus diverted 1,349 tons of material from landfills through recycling (paper, glass, aluminum, plastic, pallets, cardboard, grease, other materials), composting and food donations.
The conference took place August 26-29, 2012.
