Tis’ the season for an influx of waste and recycling in cities like The Big Apple. Join us for a timely Science Session that will unwrap the nuances of recycling in the heart of New York City, with a special focus on multifamily recycling and the unique challenges of the holiday season.
You’ll discover how social norms influence recycling habits, get practical tips on minimizing holiday waste, and see why multifamily recycling tends to be more challenging.
Meet our speaker: Elizabeth Hewitt, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Technology & Society in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Associate Director of the Waste Data and Analysis Center at Stony Brook University. She is an urban planner and social scientist, and her work explores human processes that impact energy, waste, and resilience in buildings and cities. Dr. Hewitt’s research has been awarded over $10 million in external funding from a range of sources, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), and the Environmental Research and Education Foundation (EREF).
This Science Session will be moderated by EREF’s Director of Programs Suzie Boxman.
