This class is part of the NJ Recycling Certification Series.
In this two-day course you will learn the techniques required to make and defend decisions regarding collection, develop the skills needed to understand how generation rates are computed, learn the “how-to’s” of waste and recycling contracting, and explore Heuristic routing.
During this class, the students will be divided into work groups, where the information presented will be applied to “real world” vehicle routing and collection problems. Special collection techniques and options for multi-family locations, schools, businesses, and other groups that receive special emphasis in NJ’s solid waste management plan will be highlighted.
