I’ll be spending most of the rest of this week attending the annual conference and AGM of the Association of Municipal Recycling Coordinators (AMRC) in Hockley Valley, Ontario. When I can get my laptop online I’ll post a report here, and will certainly share some impressions after the event concludes on Friday.
I look forward to today’s workshop on Management Issues and Finances, which features a presentation by our regulations writer Rosalind Cooper as part of “Treating Waste Management as a Utility.”
Most conference sessions are scheduled for Thursday, when I moderate one session, and the day concludes with a speech from the environment minister at the gala dinner. Let’s hope she has more interesting and worthwhile things to say than her predecessor, whose staff-written speeches were superficial and repetitive. I’ll let you know if she announces anything worth reporting.
