WEBINAR SPONSOR

SEPTEMBER 10 NATIONAL PRODUCT POLICIES TOWN HALL

Presented by: National Recycling Coalition Policy Committee. The results will be compiled into recommendations for the NRC Board of Directors to consider in updating NRC policies and programs.

Join this webinar for a moderated Town Hall-style event, featuring a fantastic panel of experts. Help identify areas of consensus among the different perspectives. There will be a robust discussion of product related topics designed to help build a better understanding of various policies, with a lively Q&A session!
