Beyond 34 Webinar: Realities and Opportunities in U.S. Recycling Infrastructure

Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

With increased restrictions from international markets such as China, attention has turned to the state of U.S. recycling infrastructure. Business-led innovation in product and packaging has outpaced the infrastructure in place to collect it. Strengthening domestic infrastructure will contribute to job creation, end markets for recycled materials, and a more circular system. Webinar attendees will hear about the current state of U.S. infrastructure, ideas for improving local recycling infrastructure, and examples of the latest and greatest technology in recycling infrastructure.

This is the second Beyond 34 recycling initiative webinar in a series that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is producing to support communities and businesses in stimulating local recycling systems. Beyond 34 is a multi-stakeholder initiative aimed at increasing the current 34% recycling rate in the United States by providing a scalable model to increase and improve recycling and recovery.
