LiveStream, Ep. 11: TRASH TALK: Tired of Tires
presented by Tom Metzner, Environmental Analyst, CT Department of Environmental Protection and Terri Goldberg, Executive Director, Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association
Air Date: 11/18/20
Each year, volunteers unearth dozens, even hundreds of illegally dumped tires in our rivers during CRC’s annual Source to Sea Cleanup. While the scope of the issue can be daunting, there are tried and true methods for reducing and eliminating illegal tire dumping. Join us to explore both the impacts of illegal tire dumping, as well as how you can be a part of the solution.
Tom Metzner & Terri Goldberg will provide expertise on the health & environmental impacts of illegal tire dumping, Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) on tires in CT and throughout the region; Connecticut River Conservancy River Steward Kelsey Wentling will share what CRC is doing to address the tire problem. We invite you to join the dialogue.
