The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "Recycling Is Mightier Than the Sword" with Theresa Evans, recycling specialist at the Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency.
The Chinese government recently announced a "National Sword" campaign to cut down on recycling contamination. China is a major player with significant influence in global recycling markets and their "sword" has caused many U.S. municipalities to rethink their recycling programs. Whether this changes what is accepted in curbside recycling, raises costs felt by taxpayers or impacts paper mills and other infrastructure in this country, a lot is happening with recycling right now. Learn about this dynamic and changing industry, current and future recycling trends and actions you can take at home to help ensure that recycling remains strong in New York State. Bring your toughest trash questions and try to stump the expert!
This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, March 25, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
