StopWaste

Location: California


On behalf of StopWaste.org of Alameda County, Cascadia provides technical assistance to businesses for the StopWaste Business Assistance Program. Program goals include maximizing the diversion of recoverable materials and increasing compliance with the county’s new mandatory recycling ordinance. Cascadia helped refresh existing materials, brought new tools, and developed new protocols to provide relevant and streamlined services to a larger number of businesses. Cascadia has also recruited, hired, and trained a multilingual outreach team to meet the county’s diverse cultural needs. Using onsite audits and industry-specific generation data, these trained multilingual outreach specialists provide customer-focused technical assistance to more than 1,000 businesses per year. As an extension of StopWaste.org, Cascadia assists businesses in complying with the new county mandatory recycling ordinance, recruits business to participate in the Business Assistance Program, and provides targeted assistance to individual businesses—to date reaching more than 3,300 businesses throughout Alameda County.

I wanted to provide some specific feedback on your team. They were terrific to work with. I was so impressed with their thoroughness, excellent coordination, and ability to tailor the presentation to the federal audience and the multiple locations. They were also up for anything--doing a waste sort in a conference room via videoconferencing! I’m sure this is not a traditional request, but they made it work. The attendees were very engaged and I sincerely believe that this training will result in on the ground improvements.
