Register now http://rrconference.com/attendee-registration for the August 26 Resource Recycling NRC Market Development workshop in New Orleans, LA to help understand how robust recycling markets can help our recycling economy. The workshop runs from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, August 26th and is included as a Free to Attend option as part of your overall Resource Recycling Conference Registration. Come spend an afternoon with your peers discussing what recycling market development means, what it takes to make recycling market development work, how it’s done, and lessons learned. The NRC hosted a series of regional workshops in 2018-2019 focused on local and regional recycling market development. Presentations and conversations helped participants within the targeted regions to reimagine and reanimate their efforts to attract and develop new opportunities for recycled commodities. Leading national experts will build understanding about the nuts and bolts of the process, share success stories, and identify the alliances that will be necessary to close the loop on domestic recycled material markets. Be a part of the movement to secure demand for recycled material right here at home!
