It is always important to hear the contrasting perspectives of other groups.  It provides an opportunity to educate, and to learn from each other.  Please join California’s leading environmental advocates and the architects of much of the state’s waste reduction and recycling policy at this session to gain knowledge about their goals and objectives.

For the past twenty-five years, recycling has been embraced as an important measurement of environmental performance.  The idea that more recycling must be better has spurred the widespread adoption of zero waste goals, developed with the best intentions.  However, a focus on recycling as many tons as possible does not always take into account the whole picture of the environmental impact of waste.  This presentation will explain how a lifecycle-thinking approach can help inform and prioritize waste goals and programs to achieve the greatest environmental benefits.  Don’t miss this session to learn why it may be time to move away from weight-based recycling goals to outcome-based goals based on environmental benefits. Susan Robinson, Waste Management (Invited)
