There is no question, that plastics recycling is confusing, even for the most avid recycler. But it doesn’t have to be.

Join us for this webinar to learn best practices for communicating with your residents about plastics recycling and to discuss the best way to communicate about the commodities you collect with haulers and material recovery facilities.

Experts will explain why acceptable plastics for recycling are different from town to town. The terms used for plastic recycling are unclear and contradictory, which means consumers are often puzzled about which plastics to put in the recycling bin.

In this webinar, we will:
• Discuss the need for a common set of terms for plastics recycling;
• Take a tour of the Terms and Tools resource on RecycleYourPlastics.org, an interactive tool created to walk you through the new terms, provide royalty-free images, and help you create free educational flyers; and
• Hear how a common set of descriptive terms can improve communication, increase participation, and improve quality of plastics collected.

Together, we can make plastics recycling less confusing and recycle more plastics.
