Cash For Trash
What if “waste” were a thing of the past? Companies are finding clever ways to convert their waste streams into resources. [CBSAC/NY event]

Upcycling waste to new products. Recycling garbage so it doesn’t end up in landfills. Our panel will explore opportunities and challenges of getting cash for trash and tell us how doing good for the environment is also good business. It is a dirty tale, with a clean outcome.
