She will speak about their 14 month study conducted by Eureka Recycling and the city of Saint Paul in preparation for significant capital investment in fleet and processing capacity.

They specifically looked at the cost, convenience and environmental impact (diversion) of several designs including source separated, dual stream in blue bins, dual stream in carts, single stream in carts and organics collection. She will report on their findings, final selection of program design and two years of operation since the study was completed.

Chrisitan La Pointe ,Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Labrie Equipment Limited, the 4th largest manufacturer of garbage collection equipment in North America . He will address recent innovations in the collection vehicle industry; specifically those intended for dual stream and single stream programs.

Many of the cost savings associated with single stream process actually have to do with newer, more efficient recycling trucks - those innovations hold true for dual stream, as well as, single stream vehicles.

Andrew Bell, Director of Sales and marketing at Sonoco Products Company, Hartsville, South Carolina. Sonoco manufactures 100 percent recycled content paperboard products, as well as tubes, cans and cores for the consumer and industrial markets. Sonoco owns mills in the U.S., Europe, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.

As demand for recovered fiber increases, the U.S. paper recycling industry is faced with two significant challenges: increased demand from overseas markets, particularly China, and declines in the quality of materials recovered from curbside collection, especially single stream programs.

Mr. Bell will report on the recent study conducted by the American Forest and Paper Association that highlights how quality degradation impacts paper mills in the U.S. and what recyclers should consider before making radical changes to their municipal recycling programs.
