On Thursday, April 9, MCC hosted members of the Monroe County Recycling Advisory Committee’s April session (monthly). Fred McCullough, Director, Building Services, appointed via the President of the Monroe County Legislature, has represented MCC on the committee for several years. The committee is made up of representatives from the county, city, and town governments, recycling/refuse professionals and businesses such as Diamond Packaging and Wegman’s, to name just two.
With a lot of help from an Administrative Services team, the guests remarked on how informative the presentations were. As measured by the questions that were asked, there was a very high level of interest. In addition, folks stayed after the session to network, which is another indication of the energy created.
The presenters and agenda:
