About the speaker:
Co-Founder at Garbitrage Technologies
Stacy Savage was born and raised in the Beaumont/Port Arthur area of Southeast Texas where both her parents worked at oil refineries for over 35 years. Her experience with air pollution and cancers in her family prompted her concern for the environment and her activities to protect the planet.
She has been a recycling advocate in Texas for over 15 years starting in 2003 as a grassroots, door-to-door organizer. She played a key role in passing statewide legislation for free computer and TV takeback recycling and helped Austin pass its Universal Recycling Ordinance (URO), single-use bag policy, construction & demolition debris diversion standards, and curbside organics diversion for single-family homes.
In 2015, she co-founded Garbitrage Technologies™, a Texas-based startup. Using sensors, AI, and blockchain, Garbitrage Technologies enhances the tracking of valuable discards, transparency around the disposition of those discards, and trust between customers and their haulers. As the “lowest hanging fruit” of any operational efficiency, this system will help make Zero Waste both politically and economically feasible.
