The Northeast Recycling Council will hold its Spring Conference in Wilmington, Delaware March 20-21 with the theme closing the recycling loop and building demand for mixed paper, mixed plastics, and glass.
Michael Hoffman, Financial Analyst of Stifel, will deliver the keynote address.  Mr. Hoffman will present an assessment of the impact of the domestic and global economy on recycling commodities in the near and distant future.  
The Conference will continue with Jordan Tony, Sustainability Consultant with More Recycling, who will talk about recycled plastic resins that US-based manufacturers are using and the products they manufacture with them.  
Mr. Tony will be followed by two additional industry experts who will present on how manufacturers are using recycled paper and cullet.
Three additional sessions will focus on how industry sectors are addressing post-consumer recycled content (PCR) in their products--

A session about government strategies that have affected the use of PCR in the U.S. will follow.  Garth Hickle, an independent consultant and one of the session presenters, will speak about the impact of Extended Producer Responsibility on building demand for post-consumer recycled materials.
