Recycling Infrastructure Campaign: Webinars & More

Date: 20 Sep 2021 | posted in: Waste to Wealth | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

On July 15th, 2021, the Recycling Is Infrastructure Too (RIIT) campaign released an ambitious plan that recommends $16.3 billion in new investments over the next three years. As part of the RIIT coalition, ILSR advocated for the inclusion of waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting infrastructure and programs that will stem climate disruption, address racial injustice, and create thousands of jobs throughout the country.

The RIIT coalition is hosting an ongoing series of webinars to ensure the plan is part of federal infrastructure discussions and rulemaking. These webinars are free to attend, and anyone working in waste and reuse or advocating around these issues is welcome to register.
