"Working Together to Minimize Waste" Subject of Pomona College Sustainability Discussion

Susan Collins, executive director of the Container Recycling Institute, will discuss the topic of “Product Stewardship: Working Together to Minimize Waste,” as part of Pomona College’s Sustainable Dialog series. This event will be held Monday, March 5 at 7 p.m. at Pomona College in Carnegie Hall Room 104 (425 N. College Ave., Claremont).

Collins will discuss how producers, cities and consumers are working together to reduce solid waste through extended producer responsibility and what can be done in Claremont and the San Gabriel Valley.

Collins has spent 20 years advising more than 80 municipalities on municipal solid waste and recycling programs and sustainability issues. She recently completed an extensive international research project comparing the financial, operational and policy aspects of container deposit and packaging systems in California, Germany and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia. She spent nine years on the board of the California Resource Recovery Association.
