The 4th Annual New York State Organics Summit will take place March 27th-28th , 2018 at Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, NY. This yearly event engages stakeholders from across the state in facilitative discussion aimed at developing creative solutions to barriers that restrict the sustainable management of organics materials (i.e. food scraps, yard waste, manure, etc.). The end goal is to significantly increase diversion of organics from landfills by increasing donation of edible food, and by increasing organics recycling through composting, anaerobic digestion, and other processes.
This year’s summit will focus on organic collection challenges from the generators perspective, large scale composting equipment, community composting, food recovery, residential food waste reduction and much more. Participating in the summit is an opportunity to connect with NYS material management processionals from a variety of sectors, and to develop innovative organics management strategies for your community.
For those looking to extend their summit experience, a hot lunch and tour of the Poughkeepsie Farm Project is available at the end of the second day as an additional add on package.
