Bard MBA in Sustainability presents

Sustainable Business Fridays: Pratt Industries Recycling: Harvesting the Urban Forest

Michelle Wiseman, Public Sector Representative, Pratt Industries Recycling Atlanta

Friday, April 1, 2016

On April 1st, Bard MBA in Sustainability will be speaking with Michelle Wiseman, Public Sector Representative at Pratt Recycling.

With a primary focus on recycling and sustainability, Michelle partners with municipalities, haulers and recyclers to respond to inquiries, service issues and events. She is tasked with providing education regarding the reduction of waste and easing contamination. Pratt Recycling is one of the largest producers of 100% recycled cardboard in North America and operates one of the leading Material Recovery Facilities (MRF’s) in the southeast. 

According to Bard MBA Director Eban Goodstein, "We can't begin to reimagine the city of the future unitl we deal with the issue of waste management at scale in the near term so we can focus of curbing human behavior, encouraging the basic principles: reduce, reuse, recycle over the long term, a major sustainability challenge for sure."
