Here at CRI, we’ve recently uncovered some startling facts. In the last few months, CRI’s exclusive research gives us a sense that we have a duty to warn our members in the US recycling community about new financial challenges for 2019.

This webinar will address the following questions:

  • Why has there been such a large drop in prices for aluminum cans (UBCs) recently?
  • We’ve seen dramatically lower material revenues for recyclables, but how long will the downturn last? Is this a temporary change, or the new normal?
  • Which materials have strong domestic markets, which have historically relied on exports, and how is that changing in 2019?
  • There have been big announcements by big brands: they say they want to use more recycled content, but where will that material come from? Will this help cities and states with long-sought-after market development?
  • Now that more than 1,000 redemption centers have closed in California in the last four years, what is the forecast for California redemption centers in 2019, and what will that mean for the beverage container recycling rate nationally?
  • Many communities around the US have made changes to their curbside recycling programs. With changes to the mix of materials collected, changes to market availability and declining prices, what does that mean for the average cost of recycling collection?
  • What might all of this mean for future price increases for ratepayers?

On a related note, we’ll also walk everyone through our new fact sheet on payments to curbside and dropoff programs in California through the beverage container recycling program: demystifying the complex, 5-part system of payments to curbside programs.

Presenters:

Susan V. Collins, President of Container Recycling Institute
Jenny Gitlitz, Consultant, Container Recycling Institute

In May, Vermont’s legislature passed Act 148, a measure aimed at reducing the amount of solid waste the state sends to landfills while maximizing recycling and composting.  This sweeping overhaul contains several provisions including disposal bans on mandated recyclables, yard waste and food residuals, the implementation of parallel recycling and composting programs statewide, and adoption of a Pay-As-You-Throw system.   Additionally, the Agency of Natural Resources is required to conduct an “evaluation of the cost/benefit of expansion of the beverage deposit redemption program and single-stream recycling” with a report and recommendations to be delivered to the legislature by January 2013.

CRI President Susan V. Collins will lead a panel of waste and recycling experts to discuss the new law's merits and opportunities, anticipated logistical challenges, and potential impacts to Vermont's bottle bill.

Presenters:

Cathy Jamieson – Solid Waste Program Manager, Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation

Teresa Kuczynski – District Manager, Addison County Solid Waste Management District

Michel Marquis - President, 2M Ressources, Inc.

This act is the most significant change to Vermont’s solid waste system since 1988.  Please join us on October 4 for a look at how Vermont is striving to maximize recycling at minimal costs to municipalities.
