3/4: Weathering the Recycling Storm
Recycling programs across the country are
finding ways to adjust to the turbulence in
recycling markets around the world. In Iowa,
we have already felt some local impacts from
the global recycling crisis. In this presentation,
you will learn why the markets are fluctuating,
how it’s impacting our local recycling
programs, and what you can do to help the
recycling industry recover.
