EPA WEBINAR SERIES:
Reduction Food Waste Reduction & Management
 
Food waste is the third largest stream of waste in the U.S. after paper and 
yard waste. The social, economic, and environmental impacts of food waste are 
enormous, including increased generation of greenhouse gas, negative impacts on 
sanitation and health, and the loss of potential improvements in soil health 
and food production.

To help address these impacts, EPA Region 2 is partnering with the New York 
State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Solid Waste Resource 
Renewal Group at Rutgers University to
offer a series of webinars designed to provide education on the best
avenues and methods of food waste management. Generators of food waste, 
government representatives, and public stakeholders are encouraged to 
participate.
