ANNOUNCING OUR RECONNECTING EVENTS
Often at the end of our annual conference participants say
"you should do this more often". We can only plan a conference once a year.
However, we planned five Follow-up Reconnecting Events that will
feature the national plenary speakers that we did not have time to
share at our 11th annual conference.
Note: The December re-connecting event will be at Marygrove College
5 to 6:30 pm
All other events (November, February, March & April) will be at
MSU Center 6:30 to 8:30pm.
As much as possible we will partner with a local organization
that is doing work related to the plenary presenter's topic.
All events are FREE.

WHAT'S THAT SMELL?
The Detroit Incinerator, located near I-75 and I-94, has been a major odor nuisance to residents living in the area. In 2010 the incinerator was bought and renamed Detroit Renewable Energy in an effort to "green wash" the facility although it remains a toxic, polluting facility. Zero Waste Detroit (ZWD) a coalition supported by Great Lakes Bioneers Detroit advocates for the City of Detroit to move toward a waste recovery system and away from incineration. ZWD members work hard to hold Detroit Renewable Power accountable for their actions.
When residents in the neighborhood began to complain of odors coming from the incinerator shortly after it re-opened, ZWD engaged the community to report this information to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). As a result, Detroit Renewable Power has received nine notices of odor violation and was tasked with making repairs to their facility to eliminate the extreme odor.
It is very important that during the spring and summer of 2014 residents living around the incinerator stay diligent in reporting any odors in their neighborhood.
. Report foul odors in Midtown: If you smell garbage in the air in Midtown, you may smell air pollution from the Incinerator at I-75 and I-94. Please report this to the MDEQ at 313-456-4712 or after hours call 800-292-4706.
Together we can make a difference!
