EPA Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Web Academy Webinar

In 2018, the United States generated more than 292 million tons of municipal solid waste. Measuring waste generation and how it is managed characterizes the national waste stream and is an important foundation for managing materials.

Join us for a webinar on the latest information reported in EPA’s most recent Advancing Sustainable Materials Management (SMM): Facts and Figures 2018 report. EPA will present on trends in U.S. materials generation, including recycling, composting, combustion with energy recovery and landfilling.

The second half of this webinar will cover economic indicators and trend data such as personal consumer expenditures, commodity values and tipping fees included in the latest Recycling Economic Information report. This report examined the larger economic implications of material reuse and recycling.
