A free online construction and reuse forum is planned for Sept. 16, sponsored by the Lawrence-Mercer County Recycling and Solid Waste Department.
The session is planned for 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to share ideas, build relationships, gain technical knowledge and expand the synergy necessary to build a sustainable future.
Butler, Mercer, and Lawrence County leaders are collectively bringing together representatives from local communities who play a role in how houses and buildings are constructed, managed, rebuilt and removed, with a focus on waste reduction, reuse, green job creation and land fill diversion.
Megan Gahring, assistant director of the Lawrence-Mercer Recycling/Solid Waste Department, is the organizing force behind this event.
“I was inspired last October when I attended the international conference on construction and reuse at Phipps Conservatory,” she said.
