Statewide Annual Used Oil Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Conference
2007 Workshops: Used Oil/HHW
April 18-19, 2007
The Queen Mary
1126 Queen's Highway
Long Beach, California
As you may have heard, we did things a bit differently this year by offering these two-day workshops in lieu of our traditional week-long Used Oil/HHW conference. We believed this would have achieved two goals; first, we encouraged our own staff, grantees, and stakeholders to attend and participate in the national NAHMMA conference to be held in California in the Fall of 2007 by not scheduling a week-long competing event within six months of the NAHMMA conference. The workshops offered sessions on grant-writing, targeted outreach, and what to be prepared for in an audit.
We were also privileged to have Dr. John Francis as a guest speaker. After witnessing an oil spill in San Francisco Bay in 1971, Dr. Francis chose to make a statement about oil use by not riding in motorized vehicles for seventeen years and becoming a nationally known expert on oil issues. Says Dr. Francis: "I believe that all of us who use oil have a responsibility for all of the pollution it causes…not just the oil companies."
If you are a Used Oil Block Grantee, you may charge authorized expenses related to this trip to your Block Grant. Check with your grant manager for details.
