Option 1: The Ups & Downs of Recycling


The last few years, recycling has been one longer roller coaster ride consisting of steep drops, sharp turns, and dizzying speeds - setting hearts racing around blind turns and leaving even the most seasoned professional breathless. Our speakers will discuss what has happened so far, what is around the next curve and whether we can expect the ride to flatten out.


Speakers will talk:
  • COVID-19
  • OECD/Basel
  • Marine Debris
  • Import Bans
  • Volatile Pricing
  • EPR
  • Contracts and Contamination
  • National Recycling Program Opportunities
