Two Zero Waste Events with National Expert on Waste Reduction and Recycling: Neil Seldman, PhD
Neil Seldman, a nationally recognized authority on municipal waste reduction, will be visiting the Capital Region after his very successful presentations in Queensbury last week in order to help the region strategize and plan for waste reduction in the future. Dr. Neil Seldman will speak at two Albany events about reducing municipal waste and converting it into a benefit through reuse, recycling and creating new jobs and businesses. His message is relevant to government officials and decision makers who must address our regional crises in solid waste and recycling
as well as to local scientists, economic development experts, environmentalists, students and the general public.
