A note about NRC: NRC is busy re-energizing and impacting recycling in the US. We’ve organized three market development workshops this year and are planning more for Fall 2019 (San Antonio, Tx on October 7th) and others in 2020. Also, we are re-building the Buy Recycled Campaign and Buy Recycled Business Alliance which you will hear more about the conference! Now more than ever is the time for leadership and action in recycling, so please consider joining us in New Orleans to learn more! Register here for the NRC reception and here is a link to membership if you are not a member yet.

Thanks and see you in New Orleans!

Market Development Initiatives

The South Carolina Department of Commerce has recently begun to host quarterly market development calls for the Carolinas. The calls are intended to provide an opportunity for participants to speak on a regular basis about the economic development investments that have been made in the Carolinas and their status, the latest challenges in recycling, and share information to help facilitate the processing and recycling of materials since recycling travels across state lines. The first call was held in May and was led by Chantal Fryer and Anna DeLage from the S.C. Dept. of Commerce. Mary McClellan with the CRA, Richard Chesley and Jana White at SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, and Wendy Worley and Sandy Skolochenko at NC Department of Environmental Quality all participated. The next call is scheduled for August 1st. For more information about market development in South Carolina, contact Chantal Fryer at [email protected]
