Grand Traverse Humanists present Deb Lake from American Waste with a talk on recycling in 2020. Learn all about the state of the recycling industry and American Waste’s part in it. What can be recycled these days? How should we prepare our recyclables? What happens to our recyclables when they leave the material recovery facility? It was recently announced that American Waste is being acquired by GFL Environmental: what does this mean for AW’s waste and recycling operations? These questions and more will be answered during a presentation that includes video of the recycling machines in action.
Deb Lake is the Marketing Representative for American Waste. She conducts tours of their facility, gives public presentations, and manages their website and other communications.
