Recycling Integrity:  Truths, Myths & Emerging Technologies:

The time is NOW to understand the final destination of recycling efforts and to fine tune the system as the corporate community embraces recycling as a standard operating practice.  Important fact:  Contaminated material ends up in the landfill, whether placed in a dumpster or a blue recycling bin.

Learn about common contaminants and how they vary based on operating scenarios.  Compostable packaging or recyclable material is another hot topic, especially with recent product developments, to address.  Discover which recyclable materials maintain higher value if separated and which materials co-mingle well.  Redesigning the disposal stream can be a cost-neutral to cost-savings endeavor.

With emerging technology changing the recycling landscape, these are exciting times to re-evaluate recycling programs to ensure integrity of the final destination.

These are thrilling times - stay tuned for updates along the journey to recycling integrity!
