Register Here for NERC's free webinar, Rethinking Recycling. The webinar will be held on March 19 at 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (eastern time).

Join us for the webinar with David Allaway, Senior Policy Analyst of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to discuss many facets of recycling. Some of the points to be featured in the webinar are:

Recycling is an essential element of a sustainable future, but is it sufficient? And are there unintended consequences for society and the environment if we maximize recycling, “zero waste” or “circular economy” without a larger policy framework? The State of Oregon has conducted groundbreaking – and sometimes provocative – research into the environmental benefits and limitations of recycling. In this webinar, David Allaway from Oregon DEQ will summarize that research and suggest a path forward that will help communities and policymakers improve and optimize recycling while simultaneously activating additional solutions that achieve higher order goals of conserving resources and reducing pollution.
