Event to Focus on Business Recycling

September 07, 1993|CONSTANCE SOMMER

East Ventura County businesses can learn about recycled products and services available to them at a symposium Friday in Thousand Oaks.

The session, titled "Road to Recovery Business Symposium," is being funded by a grant from the California Department of Conservation and co-sponsored by the city of Thousand Oaks, the city of Moorpark, the Conejo Valley and Moorpark Chambers of Commerce and Citizen Planners, a group that encourages environmentally based city and county planning.

"We're trying to get people interested in buying recycled products for their businesses and in developing some of their own," said Jill Rubin, recycling coordinator for the city of Moorpark.

Thousand Oaks Mayor Judy Lazar will give the opening remarks, followed by officials from various government organizations and activist groups with 15-minute presentations on topics such as "Alternative Fuel Vehicles: the Creation of a New Industry," and "What is the Recycling Market Development Zone Program and How Does It Work?"

The symposium will run from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the Howard Johnson Hotel at 75 W. Thousand Oaks Blvd. in Thousand Oaks. Registration is $20 per person. For more information, call the Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce at 499-1993.
