FREE WEBINAR: How to Beat Residential Recycling Contamination

The Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), in conjunction with the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA), recently hosted an extremely successful webinar about how to avoid residential recycling contamination.  The speakers were:

  • Dylan de Thomas, Vice President of Industry Collaboration, The Recycling Partnership
  • Jason Hale, Vice President of Communications, The Recycling Partnership
  • Brooke Nash, Branch Chief for Municipal Waste Reduction, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection
  • Chris Coady, Technical Assistance Team, The Recycling Partnership

More than 400 individuals from around the nation and Canada participated in the webinar.  The PowerPoint presentation and a recording of the webinar are both available.

An interesting tidbit about the webinar: we asked people to Tweet during the webinar to #CleanRecyclingIsBetter with ideas and comments about residential recycling contamination. Twenty-seven individuals tweeted, with another 27 retweets and 40 likes.  Let's keep the conversation going.
