This year the recycling world lost a great leader, former Recycling Partnership Executive Director Steve Thompson.
In his memory, Re-TRAC Connect, Resource Recycling and The Recycling Partnership are establishing five grants to help recycling devotees attend the August 30 to September 1 Resource Recycling Conference in New Orleans.
Grant recipients will receive complimentary registration, plus a reimbursement of up to $1,000 to cover room, travel and meals.
The 2016 Resource Recycling Conference is being held at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.
The Steve Thompson Memorial Grants are open to all who are interested in learning more about recycling. Funding is specifically targeted toward individuals at the collegiate or community recycling levels who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend this year's conference.
