DFW Regional Training

Keep Texas Beautiful is excited to hold a free virtual Regional Training for KTB affiliates in the DFW area. This is a great opportunity to learn from and network with area affiliates. Many thanks to Keep Fort Worth Beautiful, Keep Grapevine Beautiful and Keep Irving Beautiful for virtually hosting and planning these exciting sessions!
 
The training will take place virtually on four separate Wednesdays in July each for one hour beginning at 10am. We invite you to join for each of the dates, or just the ones that work for your schedule. Each training will include 30 minutes of presentations and 30 minute breakout sessions where participants can get a deeper dive on the topic they're most interested in. This will also be a time to virtually connect with other affiliates working on similar programming and facing new issues following COVID-19. We are trying to keep the spirit of in-person Regional Trainings alive through this new platform.

Webinar: The Future of Glass Recycling in South Central Texas

The State of Texas Alliance for Recycling (STAR) is partnering with the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG), the Glass Recycling Coalition and Keep Texas Recycling to host a 2.5-hour webinar focused on advancing glass recycling in South Central Texas.

Join us on July 15th, 10 am–12:30 pm CST, for a discussion with national and local industry experts to explore the existing glass collection and recycling infrastructure of the South Central Texas region, as well as highlight some successful regional glass recycling programs from across the nation.

We’ll end with a discussion on how South Central Texas can accelerate glass recycling in a cost effective manner by adopting—and where needed, modifying—other regions' successful glass recycling efforts to fit this area's unique needs.

This webinar is intended for city and county staff, elected officials, solid waste industry professionals, and other stakeholders from across the South Central Texas region. However, this webinar will also be open to the public at large.
