Additional Information:

Recycling makes financial sense but only if you design your operations to make it so. That starts with fully understanding your costs and analyzing how those costs change as your program changes. It also means that you must be able to talk the language of accounting, economics, finance and marketing. In this four-day class, you’ll work break-even levels, full cost accounting, marginal cost analysis, payback periods and analyzing waste audits. The class is fast-paced, fun and interactive. Working in small groups, you will solve problems using current costs and prices to make program decisions. You’ll practice “what if” scenarios, so that no matter how the variables change, you can still find solutions that maximize returns and minimize costs.

In order to complete the full (21-day) NJ Recycling Certification program, an individual must attend the ten (10) required courses and successfully complete all course proficiency assignments.
