[greenyes] FYI * NRC Beverage Container Session



For those interested in beverage container recycling....there is a new
session that was just added to the National Recycling Coalition (NRC)
Congress Agenda in the last ew days. I don't know if it is in the on-line
program pdf, but if you go to NRC's web site, latest program info, Monday
(afternoon) sessions, then you can get to the info below. Bottle bill
advocates may recognize some of the speakers and/or consulting firms who
have written, testified and lobbied against bottle bills for many years.
FYI....Cascadia is the consulting firm that did the report in 2002 for the
beverage and retail interests that attempted to derail the bottle bill in
Hawaii.


A Hard Look at Beverage Containers and How to Recycle More of Them
Come learn about the initial results of research sponsored by BPEC, the
Beverage Packaging Environmental Council. Participants will get a first look
at a unique analysis using industry marketing data to quantify where
beverage containers are actually consumed ? and where they can be recovered.
Using this data, presenters will also discuss challenges and opportunities
to improve container recovery rates.

Speakers:

Kevin Dietly, Northbridge Environmental (Westford, MA)
Ted Siegler, DSM Environmental Services, Inc. (Ascutney, VT)
Natalie Starr, DSM Environmental Services, Inc. (Ascutney, VT)
Mark Daudon, Cascadia Consulting Group (Seattle, WA)
