Evan R. Liblit Memorial Fund
Many of us remember Evan Liblit as an innovator and teacher of recycling and waste management.
But Evan was a student as well. Always anxious to explore new technologies and techniques, he quickly learned and understood that his field was subject to fiscal pressures, legislative compromise and the public’s willingness to cooperate.
Today’s students of environmental management face similar challenges and changes. Waste management in the new millennium will not only be subject to the same pressures of the last two decades, but new technologies will emerge and ever-changing regulation will attempt to address those changes.
In 1997, the State University at Stony Brook recognized Evan Liblit’s contributions to solid waste management and recycling, and established a memorial scholarship in his name. The Evan R. Liblit Memorial Fund will support graduate students at the SUNY Stony Brook Waste Reduction and Management Institute. The fund will be on-going and self-sustaining, and will benefit these students for years to come.
As a friend of the environment, please join with fellow Long Islanders and associates of Evan Liblit, and honor his memory by making this fund an important part of our region’s environmental future.

In conjunction with Stony Brook University – School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, the Evan R. Liblit Memorial Scholarship Fund Committee is pleased to announce “Waste on Wednesdays,” a six-part free webinar series focusing on a number of environmental issues impacting Long Island.
The management of solid waste generated on Long Island is an important issue and has significant ramifications on the economy and the environment. Each seminar series will allow participants to learn about various solid waste and recycling issues across Long Island. Topics will include the pending closure of the Brookhaven Landfill, recycling on Long Island, the management of organic waste, transportation issues, and waste to energy. Plus, we will get the perspectives of local government and discuss what municipalities and companies are doing to meet these challenges. The series will provide excellent insight and perspective, and will benefit all those who work in the fields of environmental protection, recycling, and waste management.
