At a recent recycling industry meeting a colleague of mine said that he continues to enjoy Solid Waste & Recycling magazine but was worried that recent coverage about Zero Waste issues was drawing our attention away from the kind of practical “shop floor” information that we usually make prominent.
I recognized that there was some truth to that, although I’d felt obliged to give somewhat saturation coverage to the Zero Waste topic as it was front and centre in the news this past fall.
Anyway, I thought he (and other readers) might be interested in the next (April/May) article lineup, which I think contains lots of practical information.
Here are the highlights of the April/May edition, that should be printed and mailed at the end of April.
