PRC, Philadelphia Sustainable Business Network Host Future Of Recycling & Act 101 Round Table In PA June 29

Hear from top experts about the state of the recycling industry, the environmental and financial impact of Pennsylvania recycling programs, and challenges to sustaining and growing recycling in Pennsylvania.
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 members of SBN and PRC and their guests while enjoying local snacks and beverages.
Moderating the discussion will be David Hess, Former Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection. Panelists include--
