March 15 -  Metrics that Matter -
when talking trash and recycling    
Presenter:  Don Marr, Chief of Staff, City of Fayetteville

March 22 - Silver Bullets in Solid Waste  
Presenters: Fran Alexander, Ron Giles, & Louise Mann
Most recycling programs in Arkansas were started by volunteers. These citizens got firsthand understanding of markets, contamination, and worker safety.  Unfortunately most programs did not create infrastructure for continued citizen involvement. Reviewing the lessons of our recycling past could save the community time, money and missteps in the future.
