Neil Seldman is co-founder and president of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance. He is senior staff for ILSR's Waste to Wealth Initiative, which has been at the forefront of the push to move from burn and bury policies to recycling and economic development. Seldman specializes in helping cities recover more materials from the waste stream and add value locally through processing and manufacturing. Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from this national figure, who will discuss the challenges posed by our incinerator and municipal waste stream, as well as the job opportunities linked to waste recycling.
