The Recycling Council of Alberta is maintaining a list of volunteer speakers across the province. School classes or other groups that want to learn about waste reduction and recycling can contact us and we will get them in touch with a local speaker to give a presentation on these topics.
Our presentation provides a lot of generic environmental, waste reduction and recycling information. If there is a specific focus you would like to have addressed at your session, please let us know. The presentation normally takes about 1 hour (plus Q&A), but can be tailored to your needs if you have a different duration in mind. The presenter will require the room to be set up with a computer running Microsoft PowerPoint, a digital projector and a screen. In some cases, the presenter can bring this equipment along if the group host can't provide it.
