Sustainable Living and Alternative Health | Listen to this entire show:
Our first guest on today’s Sustainable Living program, Bob West, heads up the recycle program at Dart Container Corporation located in Plant City. It’s one of the few places in the Tampa Bay area that recycles Styrofoam and they process it at their facility in Plant City on Airport Road. Dart’s also involved with educating others to recycle through community outreach events and Bob is available to speak at your event or school.
Our next guest is one of the most knowledgeable people in our area on the topic of recycling. Mitch Kessler is the president of Kessler Consulting located in Tampa. Lately he’s been heading up efforts to renegotiate recycling and solid waste contracts in Hillsborough County. Mitch is involved with about every county and city in our area in recycling and solid waste planning. He answered a variety of questions on recycling all kinds of products, how the processing works, and what these products are worth in today’s markets.
