The recycling industry is facing very different circumstances to those of ten or even five years ago. CAFR invites you to submit an abstract for a session at the 2016 Summit for Recycling conference that concentrates on how we can adjust our business models and operations to a world that will be increasingly dominated by the principles of materials management.
Recycling is the easiest thing we can all do to improve our community, conserve natural resources, and create green jobs. Together we can make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.

Assistant Administrator of the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, Mathy Stanislaus, noted that “The life-cycle based decision-making and systems-based approaches of Sustainable Materials Management reflected in this strategic plan offer far greater opportunities for addressing the complex environmental issues we face today than traditional resource, waste and chemicals management approaches.”
CAFR members are invited to join the CAFR Board of Directors and staff in Denver for a tour of mattress recycling at Spring Back Colorado. Spring Back Colorado, a nonprofit organization, provides mattress retailers, refuse collectors, governments, universities, hotel liquidators and the general public the opportunity to properly dispose of their post-consumer mattresses and box springs. RSVP required.
