Growing Recycling Businesses In New Mexico

The Angel Fire Sustainability Committee in partnership with The New Mexico Recycling Coalition presents Growing Recycling Businesses in New Mexico.

When: Tuesday, November 10 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Where: Village of Angel Fire Village Hall at 3388 Mountain View Blvd, Angel Fire, NM

In 2010 alone, New Mexicans spent $51 million dollars to bury $168 million worth of recyclable items! Can you help to change that?

An intrigued entrepreneur could start planning today. A local business owner could expand recycling services. Communities can work together to reduce the amount of material entering NM landfills and create jobs for people in Angel Fire.

English Bird from the New Mexico Recycling Coalition (NMRC) and Terry McDermott, Community Economic Development Coordinator for USDA Rural Development, will present opportunities to grow recycling businesses in Angel Fire.

Ms. Bird will discuss the “Growing Recycling Businesses in New Mexico” project and share a dozen ways that communities can spur economic development through recycling and reuse. Mr. McDermott will discuss USDA programs that can help support local entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses. The presentation is free and open to existing and potential entrepreneurs, business leaders and economic development partners who are ready for inspiration.
