Leader in Resource Management
Frisco, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Robin Sweere, Sourcing and Consulting Manager at Quest Recycling Services, LLC, was a keynote speaker at the Global Green Coalition For Resource Conservation Conference (GGC), held in New York City, NY on November 14th and 15th, 2011. Ms. Sweere introduced Quest’s “10 Steps” process, which leads service companies to optimize the food waste recycling service and reduce operating costs.
Reflecting on the GGC event, Ms. Sweere observed, “While there is a lot of talk about food recycling, Quest is taking action to actively remove food from the landfill each day in every market nationwide. While many of the lessons we learned in developing the first nationwide infrastructure could be viewed as a competitive advantage, Quest feels that sharing those lessons with others (even our competitors) is critical for a healthy infrastructure to emerge. The food waste recycling problem is a challenge we must work together to address. Quest was happy to support Global Green and the Coalition for Resource Recovery related to food waste recycling.”
Quest Recycling is at the forefront of waste minimization,food waste recycling, and waste-to-energy movements. Working with clients in all 50 states and Canada, Quest is directly responsible for the diversion of over 1 billion pounds of waste from landfill in 2010.
“The largest challenge that NYC will face is container management. The streets of NY just don’t have the same space available that retailers throughout the rest of the country enjoy. Ensuring efficient collection will be critical to public support of the program. Quest was able to share information related to collection containers and trucks to ensure a quality program is developed.”
