Material Reuse Deep Dive Forums Background
This series of virtual deep dive discussions will focus on the role of material reuse organizations in working with and building the resiliency of local communities. The presenters to be featured will talk in-depth about the programs they’ve developed to provide resources and serve the needs of residents, work toward policy solutions, and create economically viable systems.
