Free Webinar: Recycling And Waste Contracts Are Still In The Trash, And Here Is Why
Recorded On: 12/10/2020
Municipal recycling and solid waste contracts have been hard hit by two global events in the past 3 years. First, China’s exit from the global recycling commodity market, disrupting the economics of contracts nationwide. Now, the COVID pandemic adds additional disruption, through major shifts in material flows across your municipality. Join Pete Keller (VP Sustainability) and Richard Coupland (VP Municipal Sales) for their long standing annual update to ICMA members on the state of recycling and waste services.
This webinar is complimentary thanks to the sponsorship of an ICMA Strategic Partner who will have access to registration information.
