Earlier this week, members of our team attended the 26th Southeast Recycling Conference and Trade Show (SERC) at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Destin, Florida. The SERC is the provider of the premier forum that informs the public and private sectors of the significance of recycling and waste reduction. Like Carolina Fibre Corporation, the SERC is committed to recycling in the Southeast and dedicated to serving as a resource to other businesses and enhancing the ecosystem for future generations.
With 62 exhibitors and 540 registered attendees, this year’s conference showcased the newest advances in recycled products and services. Industry expert and established speaker Ed Foreman delivered a workshop on the Extrusion of Plastics and a motivational keynote that provided insights on increasing productivity and re-energizing our campaigns to reach new audiences.
We were fortunate to meet with a number of our colleagues to collaborate and discuss recent developments, the future of recycling, energy and fuel opportunities from waste, and commercial recycling initiatives.
The 27th Annual Southeast Recycling Conference and Trade show is tentatively scheduled for 8 – 11 March, 2015.
