Webinar: State Actions to Address Recycling Market Changes
July 21, 2020, 1:00 – 2:30 EST
During the past year, the Association of State & Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) Sustainable Materials Management Task Force conducted a survey of State solid waste & recycling programs to better understand how they are responding to the restrictions imposed by China & other countries on the importation of materials for recycling, particularly paper & plastic. This free webinar will share the results of this survey. It is co-sponsored by ASTSWMO, the Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association (NEWMOA), & the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC).
Presenters include Task Force Members Janine Bogar, WA State Department of Ecology; James Jennings, IL Environmental Protection Agency; Jeremy Hooper, TN Department of Environment & Conservation; Adam Schlachter, DE Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control; & Angela Vincent, CA Department of Resources Recycling & Recovery (CalRecycle).
The panelists will speak for one hour followed by 25 minutes for questions & answers.
