Wednesday, March 23, 2022
7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Session Description

Sustainable Jersey for Schools is a free, voluntary certification program for pre-kindergarten through twelfth-grade public schools in New Jersey. The program provides guidance, support, and recognition to schools that implement steps to be sustainable in their operations and proactive in preparing students for the challenges they will face in the future. Program coordinator, Véronique Lambert, will provide an overview of the certification and recertification process for schools interested in engaging in this program.

Mazza Recycling, a leading waste and recycling management company in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, is a local processor of single stream recyclables and home of the 70,000 square foot, award-winning sorting facility. Single stream recycling, where all recyclables are mixed in one collection bin, is one method of making recycling easier for consumers and increasing recycling participation. Through this virtual presentation, Mazza Recycling Sustainability Director, Brynn Mosello, will guide you through the process of sorting material through their recycling facility, and discuss the benefits of recycling which include slowing climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and contributing to the circular economy. Mazza Recycling offers classroom visits, on-site field trips, and remote virtual tours that may be of interest to teachers and administrators.
