    Hi Pete and Shawn--

    This past week, I reviewed and provided comments on the Zero Waste SWATeam's objectives for the 2020 iCAP. I sent them to Morgan so that she can integrate any of them that are useful into the F&S feedback to iWG. I let Julija Sakutyte know that I sent the comments to Morgan instead of back to to Zero Waste SWATeam.

  8. Weekly Updates for Zero Waste

    Associated Project(s): 

    Hello Pete and Shawn--

    This past week, Julija Sakutyte put me in touch with Tim Stark to discuss input on the new iCAP. I had suggested that addressing the issue of transporting recyclable materials from the point where they are generated to centralized collection points would help boost departments' participation. I know we've touched on this issue in regards to EPS and glove recycling and had an inquiry about getting toner cartridges as well. I've reached out directly to Tim to talk about the best way to frame the suggestion for iCAP.

    I have also received the Zero Waste SWATeam objectives from Julija and will review them by the team's Dec. 2 deadline.

    Best regards,

    Marya Ryan
