Turnout was excellent for the Spring Workshop and AGM of the Association of Municipal Recycling Coordinators (AMRC) in Hockley Valley Resort, near Orangeville, Ontario, May 14-15. Highlights included an interesting presentation by Clarissa Morawski of CM Consulting on new methods to calculate the economic benefits of waste diversion and organics composting, and Don Tanner’s overview of the results so far of Ontario’s new deposit-refund system for used alcohol beverage containers.
Mark your calendars! The AMRC Fall Conference will be held October 22-24 at Niagara-on-the-Lake. More information, including proceedings from the Spring Workshop, are available at www.amrc.ca
