Stop and Wond’ry: Recycling exec and Vanderbilt alum to share insider knowledge on Sept. 22

An hour in the day does not go by that people do not interact with a product that’s been recycled.

David Mendelson

Learn the true meaning of recycling and how the concept is neither new nor what you think it is from David Mendelson, BA’88, president at Donco Recycling Solutions. Mendelson has expanded Donco’s focus beyond traditional scrap paper by developing markets for a wide variety of secondary raw materials, including agricultural byproducts and multi-material laminations, among other 21st-century waste streams.

“Byproduct or Next Big Idea?” will be Thursday, Sept. 22, at 4:30 p.m. CT in Room 048 of the Engineering and Science Building. The in-person event is free and open to the Vanderbilt community and the public. Advance registration is required.
