Jessica will discuss the goals of the plan which helps set priorities to promote safe, practical, environmentally beneficial and economically sound solid waste management practices for suburban Cook County.

Deborah Stone, Chief Sustainability Officer, will provide an overview of current Cook County Sustainability efforts.
