USCC Prepares for New Era!

With the foodservice (and other industries) embracing diversion of organics from landfills to composting and other permitted uses, the USCC has a major role to play as the tides shift from landfill hauling to source-separated organics collection.

Michael Virga
Effective September 16, 2011 Michael Virga took the helm of the U.S. Composting Council as Executive Director.   With his extensive trade association and private industry background, Michael has the necessary experience and depth to develop new programs and initiatives that will propel the USCC into a new era.  In the past Michael served in executive positions at trade associations as well as private companies including the American Forestry and Paper Association, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Green Solutions and Lyon's Pulp and Paper.

With the upcoming Zero Waste Zones national expansion announcement, Elemental Impact is excited to work closely with the USCC on creating an environment where source-separated organics collection is easy, makes solid business sense and common practice.

Note the next POWER - Perishable Organics Waste to Energy Recycling - is scheduled as a session at the USCC Annual Conference, January 17 - 20 in Austin, TX.  The session topic is the Current Organics Scenario: The Successes & Challenges.  Stay tuned for more details on the POWERful session.

Welcome Mike!
