sectors, understanding the recycling infrastructure, negotiating contracts,
starting a recycling business, and marketing a recycled product will be
addressed in workshop sessions. Case studies of Michigan businesses currently
applying the principles of waste reduction will show participants how waste
minimization and recycling programs can put money back in the budget and

The event will also showcase the wide variety of recycled-content products

encourages Michigan recycling coordinators to promote the Expo to their local
businesses and encourage attendance. Brochures for the Expo will be mailed to
potential participants by February 15. For more information, contact Kerrin
