This WRED event is a complete overview of the ins and outs of paper recycling.  Learn about the various types of paper mills located in Washington state, the mechanics of how paper is recycled, the types of paper that are accepted for recycling, and why certain materials are contaminants at one type of paper mill and not at the other. The panel of experts will provide an overview of challenges involved with recycling paper, including a description of the regulatory landscape, the impacts of the China National Sword policies, the new economics of paper recycling, and how local mills are adapting to these changes. Coming full circle, we will also discuss how to create domestic demand to ensure a sustainable market for recycled paper. Register today!
