Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for check-in and refreshments.

The full-day training, featuring government and industry experts such as David Yanke, director of NewGen Strategies & Solutions and Stacy Guidry, president of Texas Zero Waste Strategies, will provide candid tips and case studies on programs and tools to help participants increase solid waste diversion in their jurisdictions and across the region.

As the state-designated planning agency for solid waste management issues in the region, CAPCOG maintains the state-adopted Regional Solid Waste Management Plan, reviews applications for landfill permits, administers solid waste grants, provides education and technical assistance and supports the multijurisdictional Regional Environmental Task Force.
