Which plastics are recyclable? Which ones do I need to rinse it out? Why are certain countries not accepting our plastics anymore? Is my city recycling? How many times can plastic be reused? What is plastic???
If you have asked any of these questions or any other pertaining to plastics and plastic recycling, this is the event for you. We have assembled Garret Schwartz of Resinate Remanufacturing, J.B. Shaw of Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and John Strawn of The Refuge to come together and give you the full plastic picture. We will chat about how it plastic’s made, ways you can reduce it, a variety of methods to reuse it, what our plastic gets recycled into and what the future of recycling looks like. We have a whole lot of Valley experts ready to converse, answer questions and tell us what they do to positively impact the planet!
