Spring is (almost) here and things are moving right along in the industry.

It seems like this is the first year that everyone is truly back at conferences and trade shows. Although people slowly came back together in 2022 and 2023, this year is shaping up to give us great networking opportunities with local, state, and national conferences out in full force. There should be many great discussions on a variety of topics, from PFAS to regulations, innovative technologies, workforce strategies, and more. We look forward to hearing some of the discussions, especially if they differ from the beginning of the year versus the end of 2024.

We have a great issue for you this month! Our spotlight is on the Tennessee Recycling Coalition whose mission is to educate the residents of Tennessee on the importance of recycling, while also organizing and developing multiple opportunities for people to come together to discuss, learn, and partner on technologies and strategies for the industry. Be sure to check out their story. “How to Stay in ADC Compliance at your Landfill” discusses choosing an ADC based on their unique site-specific circumstances, while “Harnessing the Power of Operational Efficiency with Innovative Solutions” makes the case that integrating an operational management platform is not just an upgrade, it is a strategic investment. And don’t miss “How to Extend the Life of Your Grinder Screens” covering proactive steps to maximizing your screens and reducing contamination in your grinder for efficiency gains longer life; or “The Importance of Roll-Off Dumpster Covers in Waste Management and Regulatory Compliance” that talks about how roll-off dumpster covers are indispensable in the modern landscape of waste management. Plus, other great topics to read up on include, an effective ergonomic work environment, challenges to choosing the best RNG processing and offloading station, innovative networking solutions, and more!
