What is a WRED Event?

Inspired by America Recycles Day, WSRA hosts three to four one-day Washington Recycles Every Day (WRED) events per year, bringing professionals from all over Washington State together for discussion of recycling issues and behind the scenes tours of working facilities and technology demonstrations.  WRED events typically involve a full day of activities including expert panel presentations, a catered lunch, facility tours and time for networking. These events regularly attract up to 100 participants thanks to our generous sponsors and hosts, which include member  organizations, other public agencies and private industry.

Coming up in 2016!


>Paint Recycling: More Fun Than Watching It Dry - December 1, 2016

If you’re tired of telling residents to mix their latex paint with kitty litter and dry it out -- you’ll want to attend this event!
Participants will hear from Clark County, the American Coatings Association, Stericycle, and PaintCare! For the grand finale, participants will tour MetroPaint in Oregon to see how paint is sorted, batched and made back into latex paint. Then we can talk about how to make paint recycling happen in Washington!
