Guest Speaker: Kendall Christiansen
Hear from an expert in the waste industry about the current intricacies of handling materials, products and end-of-life discards.

Kendall Christiansen Bio:
Having collected (and delivered) newspapers as a kid, and worked as a school and church janitor in his teens, Kendall Christiansen became addicted to garbage when he served as founding Assistant Director of NYC’s recycling system in 1989.  He developed a public affairs consulting practice in the field – chairing NYC’s Citywide Recycling Advisory Board, working locally with several companies, and nationally and in Canada for a major client – attending hundreds of national, state/provincial and regional conferences.  In 2016 he refocused on helping NYC’s commercial waste and recycling industry to survive and transform into a 21st century industry.  Kendall has Midwestern roots, and lived @ Prospect Park since 1980 – and with his wife and family in Lefferts Manor for 31 years.  Active on the board of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and other nonprofits, he’s chaired New York Congregational Community Services/Nursing Center for more than 25 years.
