Recycling programs in the United States have undergone many changes, from pre-1992 curbside sorting, to offshore shipping, to China's banned imports of foreign garbage. The industry has to reconsider its approach:
• Economics: When is recycling profitable?
• Infrastructure: What technologies must be implemented?
• Consumer packaging: What new regulations are proposed?
Tonight's presenter is Marg Dwyer, an Executive Committee member for the Southeast Iowa Sierra Club. She will provide a status report, then explain our options for recycling locally thru Waste Management, Connelly Recycling, and Terra Cycle.
Do you sometimes wonder whether a household item can be recycled, and how? Here’s your chance to get an overview of local options.
