Hendersonville Green Drinks: Composting in Henderson County
August 9, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
On Thursday, Aug. 9, Hendersonville Green Drinks welcomes Rachel Kipar of the Recycling Partnership. She will present a review of Henderson County’s planning and incorporation of organics management into its overall waste diversion and sustainability strategies. Most projects involve a number of community partnerships, which are integral to accomplishing program goals. She will highlight on-going projects and present future plans for continued sustainability efforts. Kipar became the environmental programs coordinator with Henderson County in 2014. Her work involves daily outreach with citizens, non-profits, businesses, institutions, and municipalities about sustainability programming, ranging from alternative fuels to energy management, recycling and waste diversion, park planning, grant writing, and outreach and education. As of Aug. 6, she started her new role as a technical assistance specialist with the Recycling Partnership, a national nonprofit leveraging corporate funds to implement curbside recycling programs through cart grants and resources.
