Our popular Intro to Recycling Class was held on October 27-29 at 401 Tunnel Ave in San Francisco. Thanks to all those who attended
This three day course focused on the All the Basics: Terms, Concepts, Equipment, and Resources in the greater Bay Area. It's a valuable tool for those new to the industry or for those looking to implement more effective waste diversion campaigns in their towns. The course will be offered again in the Spring, typically in March. Please check back to our web site for more details!
