Oct. 3 (Orlando, Fla.) — As a freshman U.S. congressman from Florida, Daniel Webster talks enthusiastically about the need for people on both sides of the aisle to work together to find solutions for what´s troubling the county.
Even though the Republican says he´ll always have philosophical differences with those on the left, he said there is room for both sides to find ways to join forces for the good of the country.
It´s what the country needs, and it´s that kind of cooperative philosophy that also will help the recycling and waste industries moving forward, he said.
“What are we going to do about waste, environment, zero waste? How are we going to solve these problems?” he asked during remarks at the inaugural Corporate Recycling & Waste Conference in Orlando, Fla., Sept. 28.
“Can we, within this room, solve the problem of sustainability?” he asked. “Can you alone do that? No. But can other groups do that alone with out you? No.
“In my mind, the only way we’re going to piece all of this together is by working together,” he said.
Webster has been in politics for three decades, working most of that time as a Florida state legislator. The former speaker of the Florida House of Representatives went to Washington this year.
The conference is co-organized by Waste & Recycling News and Republic Services Inc.
