EcoScribe is producing the Congress Daily under contract with the National
Recycling Coalition, Inc.

DUTIES: The intern will assist in writing, editing, laying out, and

Monday and Tuesday, September 27-28. Evening and early morning work is

prevention, reuse, and recycling fields. The intern will be responsible for
all other expenses including travel, accommodations, and meals.

SKILLS: The ideal candidate is a college student, recent graduate, or
