C&D Summits a Success - Part 2
The second of three summits aimed at Increasing Construction and Demolition Debris Diversion in Coos County, NH was held earlier in March 2023. The project is funded in part by a EPA Healthy Communities grant. The first summit was held in December 2022.
The NRRA Member Services team, along with NRRA's Executive Director, spent two days in Coos County presenting at the summit, and then taking part in tours of a local landfill and transfer station.
The second summit was open to Coos County Transfer Station operators and staff, selectmen, town administrators, Public Works staff, and so on. The goal was to share answers to several questions presented in the initial presentation and continue the discussion around increasing C&D diversion. It lasted for three hours and had a total of 21 attendees, which included EPA representative, Christine Beling, and three NH Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) employees. With a total of 15 of 20 towns from Coos County represented at the summit, attendees represented 90.66% (28,349 people) of Coos County’s population.
For the final C&D Summit, ALL NRRA member communities are invited to attend, as the third summit will be held during an NRRA Member Operations & Marketing (MOM) Meeting.
