MassRecycle Podcast: NRRA Provides "A Regional Perspective of COVID on the Recycling Landscape"
In October 2020, NRRA Executive Director Reagan Bissonnette recorded a MassRecycle Podcast episode with Gretchen Carey and Waneta Trabert, President and Vice President of MassRecycle. They discussed NRRA's glass recycling programs, including NRRA's new glass recycling StoryMap, which shows how over 100 municipalities in NH, VT and MA are successfully recycling glass for over 500,000 residents. They also talked about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted municipal solid waste and recycling facility operations, as well as recycling markets. The 35-minute episode was recently published and is available for anyone to listen.
Reagan also took the opportunity to share NRRA's appreciation for the work of solid waste operators during the pandemic. Thank you to our solid waste operators! We appreciate the essential work you do.
"One thing I really would like to stress is just how incredibly grateful I am to all the solid waste operators and everyone who works in the waste and recycling industry for how they managed to adjust their operations to keep this essential service moving forward [during the pandemic]… Our solid waste operators… have done a really fantastic job to continue to provide these services and in a way they can keep residents safe."
