Join WSRA for our last WRED event of the summer! Come hear from experts about the future of paper and corrugate recycling, how Starbucks sees the cup recycling landscape nationally, and what the impact and outcome of China’s Green Fence Initiative might mean for the future of fibers and other recyclables. Learn from a panel of recycling commodities experts from local MRFs and gain insights to their challenges with processing and where opportunities exist, and then tour SP Recycling, a regional MRF that is integrated with a paper mill. This is part one of a two-part fiber WRED event series.
