Alaska Common Ground is continuing our conversation about Anchorage’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) with a series exploring the sectors found in the CAP. This event will focus on the Consumption and Solid Waste sector and how we can work together to reduce both consumption and waste. An efficient and integrated solid waste management system in Anchorage is achievable if private citizens, businesses and government work together to promote consumption that is sustainable while  reducing  the waste stream, increasing  recycling, community composting, and implementing energy collection from our solid waste. This will be an opportunity to inform residents and businesses, and all interested Alaskans are welcome to join us.

MOA Sector Goal: “Develop an efficient and innovative solid waste management system that promotes sustainable consumption, recycling, and waste reduction.”  

Moderated by: Suzanna Caldwell, Recycling Coordinator, Municipality of Anchorage

Panelists:

  • Anita Nelson, Executive Director, Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling
  • Jenn Gordon, Founder, Blue Market Alaska
  • Jodie Anderson, UAF Matanuska Experiment Farm and Extension Center

We are all consumers  and live in a “throw away” society, yet when it comes to waste, “there is no away”.
