Symposium Overview

This year’s symposium will focus on the Price of Convenience, that small economic exchange that happens when we accept easy over practicality.  In exchange, for convenience, we create a lot of excess material with no available end-use markets.  Our focus at the symposium will be to explore the “Current and future state of recycling” “How should we handle single-use packaging?”, “Who should be responsible for the clean up” and “What kind of markets are available for all the materials that can be diverted?”
