Topic: Navigating Market Volatility: Exploring Instability and Solutions
Tuesday, October 30


The recycling markets have greatly fluctuated in the last few months due to the National Sword. Earlier this spring, a ton of mixed paper sold to a mill for over $70– by mid-summer they went down to nearly $5 a ton. In this session, you will hear a broad perspective of the national recycling markets and how to best navigate them. Hear about key problems with contamination in Texas MRFs and how it affects their ability to market commodities, and what strategies are being developed. Attendees will also learn about the Houston-Galveston Council of Government’s recent organics market study, and what options were identified to further enhance diversion activities.  

Presenters: Will Sagar– SERDC, Scott Pasternak– Burns & McDonnell, Dave Yanke– NewGen Strategies and Solutions
