On March 25, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., (EST), join a rebroadcast of a popular session from the 2020 America Recycles Summit, including live remarks about contamination rates in the United States and their impact on the efficacy of recycling systems. The presentations will be followed by a live question and answer session with EPA materials and recycling experts.

Contamination in the recycling stream hinders the ability of a material-recovery facility or secondary-processing facility to produce high-quality recycled materials. During this webinar, participants will learn from representatives from state and local governments and materials-recovery facilities about successful strategies and programs that are reducing contamination in the recycling stream.
