Larry Swanson Waste on Wednesdays: Waste 101 Webinar

April 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


A presentation that provides the audience with an overview of waste management practices across the Unites States with a more focused review of Long Island. The presentation reviews the “problem” — specifically, each person produces 4.6 pounds of waste each day. We will also review the types of wastes that people and businesses generate (including, auto fluff, C&D waste, medical waste, hazardous waste, municipal solid waste, ash, etc.) We will cover were waste comes from, where it goes, and how it gets there. The audience will also learn about the various waste management techniques including waste reduction, recycling, incineration and landfill disposal. Other topics that will be discussed include how waste is collected, transferred, transported and disposed both on and off Long Island. Speakers include Will Flower, Vice President of Winters Brothers and Mike Englemann, P.G., Solid Waste Coordinator, Town of Smithtown.
