The End of Recycling? Life After National Sword

November 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join local industry experts for a conversation about trash, landfills, recycling, and how things are changing since China enacted National Sword, which restricts recyclable materials from foreign countries. In the past, estimates show that as much as 70% of all plastic waste was sold to China.

Pizza provided. Free and open to the public.
