The Recycling Partnership: 2020 State of Curbside Recycling Report
Thursday, November 19 – 9:00am to 10:30am CST
The Recycling Partnership released its 2020 State of Curbside Recycling Report in March of this year. This report is an analysis of the dimensions, performance, stresses, and opportunities for improvement to curbside recycling in the United States. Join contributing author, Rob Taylor, as he provides an overview of the findings in this report and explores the report’s implications for recycling in Louisiana.
Curbside recycling in the U.S. is a very large and complex system that delivers critical environmental and economic benefits and that helps us build a robust Circular Economy. This session will explore how well the system is doing in maximizing the recovery of residential recyclable materials, how the application of best management practices can improve the performance of the system and of individual programs, and how Recycling Partnership resources can help communities in Louisiana take their local recycling programs to the next level.
