In the past few months, the recycling world has been rocked by media reports that recycling is no longer profitable, especially glass recycling. In this webinar, experts from the glass collection, processing and manufacturing industries will address the facts behind the hysteria and explain why glass recycling—when done according to a few proven best practices—is more viable, more efficient and more important than ever.

CRI’s Susan Collins will moderate the panel of experts.
