Science Policy Initiative: Saving Recycling from the Trash Bin


Location: 106 Duncan Student Center Map

Spi Nov Meeting

How much of your “recycling” ends up in a landfill? Recycling has long been touted as a solution for many of our sustainability issues, however, we must deal with low recycling rates, high rates of contamination, and fewer markets abroad for our recycling. Sustainability offices and recycling companies must craft new policies to craft a new way forward for the future of recycling. Join SPI on Thursday, Nov 21st at 5:00 PM in Room 106 Duncan Student Center in welcoming Notre Dame’s Caitlin Jacobs and Borden Waste Away’s Logan Miller in a discussion about the future of recycling.
