Hub & Spoke – A Recycling Model for Rural Communities

Join us for a free webinar on Tuesday, August 28th from noon to 1:00 pm CST. Recycling in rural areas presents unique challenges. One option is to form multi-community partnerships to capitalize on economies of scale. Learn how rural Nebraska communities can improve their recycling programs with the hub and spoke recycling model. Sarah Pierpont of Pierpont Consulting and Executive Director of the New Mexico Recycling Coalition will be our presenter.
