OCTOBER 11, 2017; 
6 – 8 P.M.

PRC is excited to invite you to a round table discussion about the future of recycling in PA. The Environmental Round Table: The Future of Recycling and Act 101 is proud to present our panel of Pennsylvania’s top recycling experts!

Panel of Experts

Moderator: Howard Wein, PRC Director Emeritus, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, PC


Prof. John C. Dernbach
Commonwealth Professor of Environmental Law and Sustainability Director, Environmental Law and Sustainability Center, Widener University, Commonwealth Law School

David Hess
Former Secretary,  PA Department of Environmental Protection

Joy Smallwood

Justin Stockdale
PRC Western Regional Director

Our expert panel will be discussing the current challenges to Pennsylvania’s current recycling law, Act 101, and potential policy solutions. Community members and local stakeholders are invited to share their thoughts on questions like:

  • Is it time to update or overhaul Act 101, the state’s mandatory recycling law?
  • How can we make it easier for consumers to know what materials to recycle?
  • Is single stream still the way to go or is increasing contamination a threat?
  • How do we fix the e-waste recycling program and the Covered Devices Recycling Act?

A tour of Construction Junction will take place at 5:30 p.m., directly before the round table. Following the event, attendees are invited to network with PRC members and guests while enjoying local snacks and beverages.

In June, PRC joined forces with the Sustainable Business Network of Philadelphia for the first Environmental Round Table. Community members, local stakeholders, and statewide experts discussed topics ranged from working with manufacturers to design for recyclability and reuse, increasing access to recycling, improving education on recyclable materials, and much more!
