Join PRC for a roundtable discussion about the future of recycling in PA. Hear from top experts on the state of the recycling industry, the environmental and financial impacts of PA recycling programs, and challenges to sustaining and growing recycling in PA. Share your thoughts on questions like:

  • Is it time to update or overhaul Act 101, the state's mandatory recycling law?
  • How can we make it easier for consumers to know what materials to recycle?
  • Is single stream still the way to go or is increasing contamination a threat?
  • How do we fix the e-waste recycling program and the Covered Device Recycling Act?
  • Given changes in consumer behavior and the markets for recyclable commodities, should mandatory recycling programs be focusing on a narrower variety of materials?
  • How do we encourage more recycling in small businesses without imposing prohibitive costs?
Following the round table, attendees are invited to network with PRC members and guests while enjoying local snacks and beverages.
