Plastics Management - economic, market and regulatory trends affecting plastics
Friday, February 16, 2018, 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM PST
Category: Member and Partner Events

Coast Waste Management Association invites you to join us for a workshop, networking event and optional tour on February 16, 2018 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, in Nanaimo, BC.

British Columbia is fortunate to have an EPR program to collect, process and market blue box plastics domestically. Policy changes in China, the largest market for recyclable plastics, are impacting other collected plastics. How we manage those plastics has created a challenge for industry. CWMA has assembled an expert panel to discuss present market conditions, work that is being done to address the issue, alternative markets for plastics and what we might expect to see going forward. 

Please plan to join us on February 16, 2018 and hear first-hand about some initiatives being implemented and the work being done to address this challenge here in BC.

 At this event we will hear brief presentations followed by a panel discussion with;

 Ian Kidd - CasCell Trading

Craig Foster - Canadian Plastics Industry Association

Tom Watkins - Capital Regional District - (invited)

Rustam Punja   - Geocycle Canada Inc. (a member of LafargeHolcim)

 CWMA is very pleased to provide you with an opportunity to hear the latest updates, ask questions of our presenters, and to network with your industry peers and colleagues.

 Please join us in Nanaimo on February 16, 2018 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, 101 Gordon St, Nanaimo, BC V9R 5J8 and feel free to forward this on to others in your network who may benefit from attending.
