Plastics Recycling 2013: What can the landfill tell us?

As part of the Vermont Waste Characterization, co-funded by the Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers, researchers are digging deep into the nitty-gritty details of plastics recycling in Vermont. How much plastic is left in the residential and commercial waste stream in Vermont? Where might efforts be focused to increase plastic recycling? Should plastics recycling focus on traditional bottles, rigids or something else entirely? How prevalent is PLA in the waste stream? Are there any implications for extended producer responsibility? Get answers to these compelling questions and more in this timely presentation.

Don't be left behind — get your facts straight from the source at the 2013 Plastics Recycling Conference, which will be held March 19-20 in New Orleans. For more information, visit www.plasticsrecycling.com.

And, after the conference, stick around for the Global Plastics Environmental Conference's (GPEC) "The Latest Need to Know: From Recycling to Sustainability of Plastics." GPEC's conference will be held right after the Plastics Recycling Conference, March 20-22 at the same great location, the Sheraton New Orleans, right next to the Crescent City's famed French Quarter. Don't miss out on these two terrific events.
