Best Management Practices for Recycling Facilities During COVID-19

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Reagan Bissonnette, NRRA Executive Director, and Bonnie Bethune, NRRA Member Services Manager, were joined by Dr. Ben Locwin, expert on infectious disease epidemiology, to discuss COVID-19 best management practices for recycling facilities.  Dr. Locwin addressed questions from live participants.  Over 300 people participated in this very informative webinar, and more than 250 watched the recording afterwards!   

Here's some feedback from our attendees:

I think this was an awesome webinar.   I was impressed with speaker knowledge and keeping it simple. I also could see the slides and questions followed with supplemental examples were well prepared!

 It was really terrific.  I appreciated that it was very high level and featured an expert from outside the industry on the topic that was most pressing.  Thank you!

 So enlightening to understand that through the air is a much, much more likely path of exposure than through surface-hand-face contact.  I’m so glad you asked that.
