Market Impacts, Economics of Recycling and the Evolving Tonne
Annual General Meeting
Hi there. 
Coast Waste Management Association invites you to join us for a workshop, networking event and our AGM on April 22, 2016 at the Songhees Wellness Centre, Victoria, BC.
The 'evolving tonne' (lightweight materials, organics out and less newspaper) continues to challenge recyclers. When coupled with a strong US dollar, cheap oil and manufacturing declines in Asian markets, profits in the recycling industry are down.
What impact do economic market conditions (global or local) have on how we manage our waste and recyclables? How have the historic markets for recycled commodities changed? What role should government play to support the industry? How does recycling fit into the big picture of sustainability / climate change / global warming? Should we still be encouraging recycling and if so why? What can a planner/policy analyst do to keep recycling at the top of the public's 'to do' list? What can this industry sector do to help sustain the business model?
