NRC to Hold Sustainable Materials Management Webinars

Check out the National Recycling Coalition’s (NRC) webinars on February 11th and 18th on the “Recyclers Guide to Understanding SMM.” In preparation for the National Sustainable Materials Management Summit, NRC is conducting these two webinars to assist our members in better understanding the definition and applications for SMM in their own programs and communities. These informational webinars are designed to help members prepare for active participation in the Summit. Members are encouraged to attend both, as together they are designed to help build knowledge and expertise in SMM in advance of the Summit.
