State Actions to Address Recycling Market Changes
July 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Association of State & Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) Sustainable Materials Management Task Force conducted a survey in 2019-2020 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 shared the results of this survey. It was co-sponsored by ASTSWMO, NEWMOA, & the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC).
Presenters included 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).
