WELCOME TO SUSTAINABILITY TALKS

Hi there.

Welcome to the first issue of Waste360 Sustainability Talks. 

Sustainability is not a new concept. The waste and recycling industry practically invented it, right? That's why we need to be the ones to talk about it in an action-oriented way. 

That's what you will find here. Real talk. Susan Robinson from Waste Management does a fantastic job in her article. She talks about thinking BIG about sustainability and our role in what that means today. 

Enjoy this first issue and please send any ideas or thoughts my way. I want to amplify your voices and highlight the important work you're doing.

Thanks for reading,

Liz
