Waste Management Series Part 2: Recycling in Connecticut - A Municipal Perspective


10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


CCM and the Housatonic Resources Recovery Authority are excited to partner for a six part series, Waste Management and Recycling in Connecticut. 

This series will provide an education on the basics of what’s currently happening to Connecticut's waste and recycling, how it is managed, where it is going, and what capacity currently is available. 

These trainings will serve as a tool to help Connecticut leaders begin to look towards the future of creating a sustainable waste management system.


In the second installment of this six part series, local experts from across the state will engage in a roundtable discussion on their experience and knowledge of recycling in Connecticut. 

The roundtable discussion will address questions such as:

  • How has single stream impacted municipalities? 
  • How has the recent downturn in markets impacted budgets? 
  • Will municipalities implement Pay As You Throw to help with cost?   
  • What about towns who rely on the private sector to manage collection, what impact if any have they experienced? 
  • Is EPR for packaging a solution to the financial burden? 
  • Can an expanded bottle bill help or hurt municipal budgets?
  • What are the benefits to source separating material at your transfer stations, does it help or hurt collection?
  • What about sharing regional services?  


Join us to see how your municipality compares!
