The deadline to submit proposals to compete in the 2014 Recycling Innovators Forum is fast approaching.

Those interested in having their idea considered for the Forum have until April 30 to submit proposals. The Forum is seeking the top ideas in how to advance recycling, including new plastics processing or collection methods, improving recyclable quality and other areas. The individuals behind the top 10 ideas will be asked to present them to a panel of judges and an assembled audience of approximately 200 recycling professionals.

The second annual Recycling Innovators Forum is a competition to seek out the highest-return, most actionable new ideas to move recycling forward and is sponsored by Alcoa, the American Chemistry Council, Coca-Cola Recycling, Resource Recycling (the parent company of this publication) and Waste Management. The competition will be held on Sept. 15, the day before the start of the annual Resource Recycling Conference in New Orleans, and will award two $20,000 prizes to the top two of the 10 Forum finalists.
