Learn how to make money from recycling

Business owners hoping to turn trash into cash can take advantage of a St. Louis-based recycling expert Aug. 29 at the Cape Girardeau County Extension Center, 864 West Jackson Trail. Lee Fox, director of the Missouri Market Development Program for University of Missouri Extension, will answer questions about generating revenue from waste products. This will be the first in a series of quarterly visits to the Southeast Missouri region. Many businesses create waste material that is too valuable to put into a landfill, said Richard Proffer, extension regional business development specialist in a prepared statement. Businesses can find out about programs to match them with others who can use their waste products and apply for funds to improve waste management, Fox said.
