Tell About the South: Landfills, Sustainability, and Environmental Justice

August 30 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

 

Join us for this lunchtime discussion, as CSAS welcomes Blair Pollock, the solid waste planner for Orange County who initiated public recycling programs for the county beginning in 1987. He holds a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning from UNC-Chapel Hill. Pollock will discuss the history of Orange County’s landfill, which is now closed and in long-term care. He will also address ongoing challenges for recycling and waste management and give some tips for how you can make a difference.

This event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served. RSVPs to csas@unc.edu will be appreciated but are not required. Our Center is located along free Chapel Hill Transit bus routes A, CL, D, F, NU, and U.
