Washington Recycles Every Day Events

What is a WRED Event?

WRED participantsInspired 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.

2017 WRED Events

WRED - All Charged Up: Exploring Battery Recycling
March 30, 2017
With an all-star line-up of speakers from across the nation and locally, we’ll look at everything about battery recycling: how batteries are recycled, what happens to components, stewardship programs, battery recycling in Vermont, Canada and Europe, legislation, economics of recycling, and the toxicity of various chemistries. We will then harness all the brainpower in the room to focus on future of alkaline battery recycling in Washington and what it will take to make that a reality! With a virtual tour of Battery Solutions' recycling facilities this is a must attend event.
