Using Contracts To Advance Waste Reduction Efforts

Originally took place on: December 14, 2016

Webinar Summary:

Haulers and other service providers can be valuable allies helping achieve waste reduction goals. A deliberative approach to the contracting these services is crucial, however, for schools to avoid being exposed to mismatched expectations and service providers with little incentive to support their sustainability objectives. This program included examples of how several campuses have approached hauling and housekeeping contracting, and included a panel discussion with industry experts discussing best practices for the procurement and contracting process.
