Recycling 2.0 -- Changing Consumer Behavior Amid Changing Waste Streams

December 9, 2014
Webinar
Type: Event

Description:
Consumer recycling, once seen as the most basic of environmental practices, has become decidedly more complex. Some communities have mandated aggressive, long-term, zero-waste goals to divert sometimes up to 90 percent of their waste from the local landfill. That can lead to a wide array of what's collected -- and what's not -- engendering confusion among residents.

The result: After decades of growth, recycling rates have plateaued, or even dropped.

How can cities regain the momentum? There are some tried and true methods, but it takes a village, literally -- producers, recyclers, municipalities and consumers, working together to find solutions.

In this hour-long webcast, you'll hear how waste streams are changing; the latest data about what consumers think about recycling and what messages resonate with them; how one of the nation's largest recycling companies is working with cities to increase recovery rates; and the secrets behind one of the most successful municipal recycling programs in the United States.
