 “Creating Value through Zero Waste”

National Zero Waste Business Conference

Orange County Hilton, Costa Mesa, CA
June 26 & 27, 2012


Dear Casey Coates

The USZWBC Conference is a must for businesses seeking to get the maximum benefit of complying with the new state law AB341.

AB341 requires all major businesses in the state to recycle starting July 1, 2012. As more businesses pursue this goal and strive for Zero Waste, they will dramatically save money and become more efficient.

“Success in business is often tied to efficient processes and practices, and nothing says efficiency better than zero waste. In California, we are embarking on an ambitious initiative to reduce, recycle and compost our way to a 75 percent recycling rate, and the commercial sector will play a significant role in helping us achieve this goal. By implementing and expanding waste reduction and recycling, businesses will preserve their resources and strengthen the bottom line, and through innovation and sheer will, contribute to a new, more efficient world.”  Caroll Mortensen, Director, CalRecycle

 Only FOUR days left for Early Bird rate ends Friday, June 8th!
