The world of recycling markets has been thrown into turmoil by China’s refusal to accept recyclable material from outside their borders. Without the infrastructure to process this material, prices for disposal continue to rise and approach the cost of landfilling, begging the question: Is recycling worth it? As part of our 2021 Community Conversations about the environment, join Goffstown Department of Public Works Director, Adam Jacobs, in discussing how we got here, what we can do in the future, and ethical issues surrounding these considerations.
Registration is required. We will meet remotely, and all registered participants will receive an email invitation to join the discussion.
This event is part of our Community Conversations series; please visit http://www.goffstownlibrary.com/communityconversation for more information. This year’s Community Conversations are focused on dialog about our environment, including trash and recycling, stormwater, global warming, clothing recycling, our carbon footprint, and much more.
