Recycling Grocery Rigid Plastics- Continued Progress September 23, 2014
North American grocery stores have a great record of recycling cardboard and plastic film. To further expand sustainability efforts, reduce carbon footprint, and decrease waste disposal costs, some grocery chains have implemented an additional program - rigid plastics recycling. Buckets, pails and containers found behind the counters of the deli, seafood, bakery and pharmacy departments are a high volume disposal item with strong recycling market value. Attend this webinar to learn how a major US grocery chain is successfully recovering their grocery rigids, hear from the plastic recycling marketplace on rigid plastics value, and learn what resources are available in Canada and the US to help you implement programs. Speakers include Liz Bedard, APR; Ted Brown, Brown Sustainability Solutions; Kim Brunson, Publix; Keith Bechard, Entropex; and Krista Friesen, CPIA.
