ISRI Participates in Southeast Recycling Development Council Annual Summit (SERDC)

Last week, I had the opportunity to provide the keynote presentation at the Southeast Recycling Development Council’s (SERDC) Annual Summit, held in Atlanta.

SERDC, celebrating 10 years this month, is an organization of state governmental leaders, industry, and non-governmental representatives that work together to try to strengthen their local economies through greater recycling in the 11 states that make up the southeastern region of the U.S. (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia). My presentation was entitled Recycling at a Crossroads, and was designed to provide background for attendees on the state of the private, for-profit recycling industry today, focusing on the important role that recyclers play in the manufacturing supply chain, both domestically and globally, and the challenges that the industry faces in today’s economy. The presentation was aimed at setting the stage for an ongoing dialogue on the role various stakeholders have in helping to strengthen the business of recycling. Following my presentation I had an opportunity to moderate a very good panel discussion focused on the economics of the collection and recycling of material sourced through the residential sector. For more information, please feel free to contact me.
