CAFR Rural and Front Range Round Tables
March 22, 2017
10:00am - 3:00pm
Please bring a lunch - drinks provided
Momentum is building for more regional collaboration on recycling based on CAFR's successful Round Table discussions from the 2016 summit. Let's come back together to hear what's working in other communities and work together on solutions to common problems in these highly interactive workshops.
New faces are welcome so please share this with friends and colleagues!
Each group can select as many topics from this list as they like for discussion:
- Data collection and hauler licensing: Establishing standards and streamlining collection to help measure progress and compare programs
- Business recycling: Developing a statewide network to share tools, best practices, training materials and more
- Hard to recycle materials: Increase recycling opportunities by developing regional infrastructure and building economies of scale to reduce collection costs
- Organics infrastructure: Developing a regional network of transfer stations and facilities
- Education: Establish collaborative network to share education resources and messages
These sessions build from our 2016 working groups. Get caught up by reviewing the notes from the previous session.
- Randy Moorman -" Front Range - Randy Moorman is the Director of Community Campaigns at Eco-Cycle. He is a current member of the CAFR Board of Directors and co-chairs the CAFR Policy Committee. Randy has spearheaded campaigns throughout Boulder County and in Denver on everything from education to policy to infrastructure.
- Laurie Batchelder-Adams - Rural - Laurie Batchelder Adams/LBA Associates has worked extensively with rural communities from Routt to Montezuma and La Plata to Baca Counties to tackle obstacles to diversion, plan strategic MSW and C&D improvements, and bring stakeholders together. LBA has helped 20 of these agencies conduct RREO or USDA grant projects and is working with 8 more this year. The logistical and political challenges are very different away from the Front Range - we understand the value of effectively facilitating diverse working groups, crafting practical policies and designing infrastructure and programs that are straight-forward to implement yet have regional benefits.
Who should attend?
- Business owners and staff interested in recycling
- Managers and directors of facilities
- Environmental services coordinators
- Nonprofits, schools and universities
