The Nebraska Conservation Education Fund is hosting a Town Hall Event tomorrow with several local leaders to discuss the directions Omaha is taking in the next few years.
The first speaker will be OPPD Board Member and Verdis Sustainability Group Director Craig Moody, who will discuss the direction OPPD is taking in regards to being more sustainable. He will also be open to questions regarding his company, Verdis Group, and how he works alongside local businesses to help them be as sustainable as possible.
Additional guest speakers will be two representatives of First Star Recycling, the main collector of recycling materials in Douglas and Sarpy Counties. They will discuss what First Star is currently working on to make recycling easier and faster for the Omaha Metro, as well as their current programs that expand into smaller, more rural communities in Northeast Nebraska.
This event will be moderated by NCEF’s Northeast Directors, and will follow an interview-style format: asking questions gathered from the community via door-to-door canvassing and sit-down meetings, and then allowing for questions from our event attendees following their discussions.
