For the past several years, ILSR with funding from the US Environmental Protection Agency/ Region III, has been promoting food waste composting in order to divert organic materials from the waste stream and to support the developing food composting infrastructure.

ILSR is now pleased to be partnering with PHS in offering a program that will focus on new developments in food-waste composting practices. The forum is bringing together innovators, policy makers, and visionaries in the field to examine current barriers to food waste recovery, public policy issues, and successful models from the region and around the state.

Seating is limited — the early-bird registration deadline is January 29, 2010.
