Knowing and understanding the technical aspects of managing organics is what most people focus on when interested in starting or when implementing an organics management program. The other key components that are often overlooked, but are equally essential for success, are problem solving and strategic decision making. Identifying existing and forthcoming problems, being proactive in addressing issues, and implementing appropriate solutions are all part of the mix of successfully managing organics.
NERC’s upcoming Workshop —Organics Management in Urban and Rural Areas—will address maximizing the prevention of nuisance issues and methods for addressing common problems (odors, storm water/leachate management, dust, traffic, and vectors). In addition to sessions, a hands-on activity on designing and developing a composting facility to optimize organic material management will also be offered.
Workshop Dates: April 15 – 16, 2014
Location: Haraseeket Inn, Freeport, Maine
