We're all familiar with recycling's environmental impact but how about its connection to business development? When communicating the importance of your community's recycling program to decision makers, how well do you connect recycling to material development, jobs and your regional economy?
This session will discuss the history of recycling in the U.S. and how companies have grown to look to recycled feedstock as a source of good material. We'll learn adoptable tips from two states that are using that information to help boost recycling through legislation and economic development. And we'll wrap up with tools and resources to help you do the same.
