2020 Markets Development Workshops


In 2020 the NRC is proud to present:

Forging Ahead: Regional Market Development Workshops

The National Recycling Coalition is helping grow the new recycling economy by hosting a series of recycling market development workshops in 2019 across the Southwestern United States, with events in Albuquerque, New Mexico; New Orleans, Louisiana; and San Antonio, Texas.


  • San Diego, CA –  February 11, 2020 – in partnership with the California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA), Zero Waste San Diego and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Memphis, TN –  February 11, 2020 in partnership with Keep America Beautiful (KAB), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

At regional workshops, attendees will benefit from the training by gaining:

  • An understanding of what’s required to develop local end-markets for collected recyclables
  • Techniques on how to recycle right, create jobs, improve the quality and quantity of recyclables and increase efficiency in local programs
  • New contacts in the recycling industry to network with and leverage new partnerships
  • Free resources available that you can customize for your programs
