Is recycling enough?

For any municipality, an effective separate collection kerbside system that enables high-quality materials to be recycled forms the foundation of any local zero waste strategy.

For most residents, they believe that by recycling at home, they are doing their bit to help reduce waste and protect the environment. However, given the urgency of the need to address the myriad of environmental issues we face today, is recycling enough or do we need a more bold approach?

This webinar will go into greater depth to answer these key questions:

-Why are so many member states not achieving the 2020 EU recycling target? Is there enough recycling capacity in Europe today to meet the demand?

-What are the problems with recycling today? Can citizens be confident that what they put in their recycling bin actually gets recycled into a new product or materials?

-What policies and solutions can local municipalities implement with their communities to ensure reuse over recycling?

Unfortunately, the webinar platform we use has a maximum capacity of 100 virtual seats.

Therefore, to watch the webinar, attendance on Zoom will be done a first-come, first-served basis, meaning that only the first 100 people will be able to join on Zoom.

However, if you are not part of the first 100 who join at the start of the webinar, then you can still follow the webinar live on our YouTube channel.

We will ensure questions posed on our Youtube channel are still relayed to the speakers.

The speakers presentations will be available for free in the following days. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
