The training will include some creative exercises for helping government employees with developing a deeper understanding and awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Training will focus on the importance of the path each of us takes in this process, how it empowers us to advance our thinking about DE&I, and that job titles and work priorities don't have to be limiting factors.  

Recycled Content Mandates: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA), Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), and West Coast Climate and Materials Management Forum.

Recycled content mandates are growing in popularity as a policy mechanism to engage producers in responsibility for recycling markets, sharing in the costs of a functioning recycling system, and reducing climate change impacts. But not all recycled content mandates are the same, and some have the potential for unintended consequences.

That’s starting to change as more sustainability initiatives are finding viable options to capture blue wrap and other plastic packaging from OR’s, clinics, and labs.

De-packaging is growing as a way of making the significant amount of waste from unused packaged food available for anaerobic digestion and composting. During the webinar, attendees will hear from operators of de-packaging facilities.
