We brought our popular Ask Me Anything: Recycling event LIVE to our 2022 NRRA Annual Recycling Conference this year and got some great questions! The questions were different from our online AMA event, but super interesting and informative, just the same!

NRRA's Ask Me Anything events let YOU ask all of your recycling questions to a panel of experts. We tackle questions such as - what do those chasing arrows mean? Do egg cartons get recycled with paper or cardboard? Is recycling even worth it? And much, much more!
