Everyone involved in the recycling industry knows that without end markets for materials collected and processed as part of any recycling program, recycling cannot work. Therefore, recycling professionals and anyone else interested in successfully starting and maintaining a recycling program must stay current with the latest developments in recyclable material markets. This is especially important in Florida which has a 75% recycling goal, one of the most aggressive such goals in the country. This presentation will explore the state of domestic and international recyclable material markets.
