NHMA - Recycling 101: Municipal Solid Waste & Recycling in New Hampshire

Thursday, April 22, 2021
9:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT

NRRA staff will be leading a new virtual workshop, "Recycling 101: Municipal Solid Waste & Recycling in New Hampshire" for the NH Municipal Association on Earth Day - April 22, 2021 from 9 AM to 12 PM.   This workshop is designed for all municipal staff, including public works, finance, town administrators, and select board members.  


What is the current state of municipal recycling and solid waste management in New Hampshire? What does the future hold for municipal budgets with respect to recycling and solid waste? Is recycling still worthwhile for New Hampshire municipalities?

Join Reagan Bissonnette and Heather Herring of the Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) for an in-depth workshop on solid waste, recycling, and waste reduction for NH municipalities. Over 80% of New Hampshire’s towns and cities are members of NRRA, a recycling nonprofit that helps municipalities manage their own recycling programs. The workshop will provide an introduction to municipal solid waste, recycling, and other waste reduction techniques, including composting and pay as you throw. Attendees will learn about recycling markets, including recent changes during the pandemic, and how municipalities can make informed decisions to improve their recycling programs and reduce their costs. To bring these concepts to life, the workshop will include case studies about plastic and glass recycling as well as specific examples for how other New Hampshire municipalities are successfully managing their recycling and solid waste.
