Recyclers in NJ meet for 32nd education & awards event

The Association of New Jersey Recyclers (ANJR) brought the state's recycling community--public and private--together on Oct 17, 2012 for a morning of education, recognition of outstanding performers, and a chance to meet with vendors offering the latest in recycling equipment and services.

EnviroPolitics chatted with several of the participants, including a national magazine editor, a former NJDEP chief of staff, a man whose 'app' will tell your smart phone all it needs to know about what you can put at the curb on recycling day, a woman who has plans for your empty juice carton, and a pair of adorable fifth grade poets.

Meet them all in the video below. (Click arrow at center screen to start the show)

In an upcoming post and video, we'll list those who were honored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for outstanding contributions to recycling over
the past year.

We'll also meet Paul DeCosimo, the man who supplies recycling containers used
in hundreds of local businesses, schools and parks--including Yankee Stadium.

Finally, we'll look inside Sims Recycling's Recyclarium, a traveling classroom that
is bringing the lessons of recycling to hundreds of New York school children.

Disclosure: Our sister business, Brill Public Affairs, is a proud provider of consulting
services to ANJR
