Communication, Education & Marketing Technical Division

Videotaping with Young Professional

The Communication, Education & Marketing Technical Division uses words and images to network, spread ideas and promote solid waste industry interests to the public and decision makers.

Communication motivates customers, gives them information to make purchasing decisions and persuades them to alter their attitudes and behaviors to become environmental stewards. Division members will help you identify campaigns and strategies that will work best for your organization.

These strategies fall into three main categories:

  • Public Awareness – outreach with information that people need to know
  • Educational Program – a range of steps and activities from awareness to action with an ultimate goal of broad environmental stewardship
  • CEM Tools – the creation and implementation of advertising materials that are specifically developed to sell a product or increase participation in a service
