You Have Questions About the Business of Recycling. We Have Answers.

Our Waste360 readers and event participants have asked lots of questions lately about the state of recycling

And that’s where the Waste360 Recycling Summit comes in. We invite you to discuss these questions and much more in person…

What does recycling look like nationally? Can’t we see a snapshot all in one place?

Yes, you’ll finally see a definitional framework that highlights how recycling goals can be based on measurable metrics at the Recycling State of Practice: Policy, Tonnage, and Beyond session. And, be there to watch EREF unveil a recycling data aggregation effort that presents a national picture of how much recycling is occurring and highlights differences between states and regions. The data takes into account tonnage, composition, technologies, and how much of the hauling of recycling is done by facility owners. So yes, finally all of this detail will be in one spot—be sure you’re there to see it!

How can we make sustainability programs successful?

Whether you’re a single facility or a Fortune 500 company, you know that sustainability programs are an industry pain point. Join the esteemed Customer Sustainability Panel to learn what it takes to make these programs a success. Watch as speakers from Starbucks Coffee, Mars, Inc., the NWRA, and the City of Chicago share best practices, long-term strategies and secrets of success.

What will be the impact of the ramped-up diversion goals?

It’s no secret that state and local governments are increasing their goals to divert more materials from disposal. Several states have enacted new laws requiring recovery levels that would have seemed impossible a decade ago. Join experts from Waste Management, Resource Recycling, the EPA and Cascadia Consulting Group in the forward-thinking Diversion Panel that will cover all of this! Benefit from the advice they share as they predict the impact of higher diversion goals on our industry. 

These are just a few of the questions we’ll answer for you at the upcoming Waste360 Recycling Summit. Plus, this forum is ideal for asking questions, seeking advice and walking away with more ideas than you can implement!

Hurry and register before the early-bird deadline expires on July 30.  Plus, use code ANSWERS to save $75 off the conference program and get FREE exhibit hall admission.

See you in Chicago for this must-attend event!
