Joining Forces: Tackling the Current Recycling System Across Industries (WasteExpo 2021)

July 22, 2021

With only 8.4 percent of plastic currently being recycled, consumer packaged goods companies, packaging suppliers and the waste and recycling industry are facing immense pressure from consumers to figure out a better way to do business. In fact, nearly 8 in 10 Americans believe a solution to the packaging waste crisis is worthy of the same societal importance as the Apollo space project or creating a national highway system. This is our opportunity to transform the way industries engage—to join forces across the entire supply chain and to work together to keep valuable materials circulating through the economy by way of an improved recycling system. In this session, speakers will provide perspective on their section of the supply chain’s responsibility in developing a national recycling system to combat recycling issues in America. They will also discuss the relationship between climate change and packaging, unveiling the effects that recyclable packaging really has on the climate.
