~Recycling Fact of the Day~

A typical disposable lunch, with items like single-serve yogurt, Ziploc bags and juice boxes, creates 4 to 8 oz. of garbage every day. In a year, this could generate up to 67 pounds of waste



The NRRA office will be closed June 8th and 9th for the conference. Please schedule any necessary pick-ups for June 8, 9,or 10 by this Friday, June 5. Thank you!

“Hurry Hurry Hurry!!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen and children of all ages!”

As a “twist” to the silent auction, NRRA will be having its popular tub raffle this year.  This is an important fundraising event for NRRA, and an opportunity for you to win some great prizes.  It’s easy to do – simply purchase your tickets at the “SPIN TO WIN” booth #52, place them in the container in front of the prize(s) you are interested in winning.  At lunch on Tuesday, we will announce a winning ticket for each prize.  You do not need to be present to win; but be sure to write your name and phone number on the back of your tickets if you don’t plan to be there for the drawing.  Then we will contact you so you can arrange to pick up your prize.  Tickets are $ 1 each or $ 5 for an arm’s length.  You can place as many tickets as you like in any of the containers.  The more you play, the better your chances of winning will be!  (We prefer cash sales for tickets; however, if you do not have cash and would like to purchase a minimum of $15 worth of tickets, we will allow a Visa or MasterCard purchase).

The NH DES Operator Certification Rules became effective July 1 and are linked HERE.  If you have any questions, contact either NRRA or NH DES directly.  To visit the link for the NH DES new Solid Waste Operator Applications and upcoming workshops visit:  http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/waste/swrtas/index.htm


Continuing Professional Development for Certified Solid Waste Facility Operators

Certified solid waste facility operators must attend or participate in 2.5 hours of relevant continuing professional development each year to keep their certification current. This typically means attending at least one training event such as a workshop or conference. Operators must submit written confirmation of attendance with their renewal application for trainings not provided by DES. Credit will generally be given for continuing professional development that offers information about and increases awareness of environmental, waste management operations, and health or safety issues.

DES offers workshops to meet the 2.5 hour per year requirement of continuing professional development, but also accepts relevant training from other organizations. Please click HERE for some current training opportunities. DES updates their web page when new workshops are scheduled, so check back often to find new postings.
