Webinar Information


As beverage sales increase, recycling remains flat. The result is that we continually need more resources to meet the growing demands of our consumption-driven, throw-away lifestyle – and more landfill space to dispose of it.

One of the hallmarks of the Container Recycling Institute is our research tracking state by state sales, recycling and wasting data for most beverages and beverage packaging sold in the U.S.  We are getting ready to release our 2013 report which includes data covering the past 10 years. Our research has revealed some interesting and pronounced trends over the past decade. We are eager to share our findings with you.

On September 12, we are hosting a webinar to preview our report and unveil the U.S. beverage container recycling rate. We expect this webinar to be popular and we have limited capacity, so sign up now and reserve your spot!

The discussion will be facilitated by CRI’s President, Susan Collins.  Jenny Gitlitz, CRI’s former research director and current principal consultant on this year’s report, will outline the substantive aspects of the research project.  Jenny has conducted CRI’s research for this report for several years.  The webinar will walk you through the details of the report as well as the important implications for the container and recycling industries going forward.
