OVERVIEW

We are excited to announce that the 2023 NYS Organics Summit will be held on April 3-5 in Syracuse, NY at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown. The 2023 summit will include two full days of programming (April 3-4) and a half-day of local facility tours and equipment demonstrations (April 5). The annual summit is an excellent opportunity to connect with more than 190 organics professionals and local leaders to share success stories, learn about emerging issues, develop networks and partnerships, and discuss creative solutions to help advance sustainable organics management across NYS.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

A diversity of professionals and local leaders working at all levels of EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy is encouraged and welcome to attend the summit, including compost facility operators, organics haulers, materials management coordinators, directors of solid waste, sustainability/climate planners, soil and water conservation technicians, extension staff, environmental consultants, local and state government employees, farmers, researchers, educators, students, and others.   


WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA?

The planning committee is currently reviewing all session and speaker proposals that were submitted this fall. The summit typically features sessions that focus on organics related policy and regulations, large and medium-scale organics recycling facilities, food scraps hauling and collection, funding mechanisms, compost marketing and application, community outreach and engagement, food loss prevention, and more. A more detailed agenda will be posted in January 2023.
