Why can’t I recycle that? Let’s talk about Philly’s recycling system.

August 21 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm

Philadelphia has a waste problem. Recycling is CONFUSING, between what can go in recycling bins – and can’t, if the contents are ACTUALLY being recycled and why this happens. Join Green Philly with experts in Philadelphia’s recycling system to understand why this system is broken, how we got here, and what innovations we need for a clean city. 

  • How the single-stream recycling industry works
  • Why Philly’s recycling system is broken: the history of waste in Philadelphia 
  • What Philly has accomplished with recycling and waste  – and where we’ve failed.
  • Ways we (citizens, businesses and entrepreneurs) can innovate and solve the trash problem
