With the decline of recycling markets, and the recent New York Times article by John Tierney questioning if recycling has run its course, some in the industry are wondering if recycling is really worth it?

Join AOR as we examine the value of recycling beyond commodity prices and explore ways to communicate the true value of recycling to decision makers, consumers, and the likes of John Tierney.

This forum will take a closer look at Tierney’s arguments for why the reign of recycling is over and offer counterpoints refuting his claims. We’ll take a look at market conditions for recyclables to gain a better understanding of why some materials’ value in the market place fluctuates and the impacts those fluctuations have on programs. Small groups will discuss the tools needed to communicate the benefits of recycling beyond the bottom line with the end goal of developing a best-practices communications toolkit for use after the forum.

The day will conclude with a hosted Happy Hour for additional discussion and networking opportunities.
