When you put something into a recycling bin, is it going to be actually recycled? Steve Orr of the Democrat and Chronicle offered an in-depth look into the state of local recycling, including the financial pressures and the choices in front of us.
We discuss what does - and does not - happen with our recycling, and the forces that are causing change. In studio:
- Steve Orr, quality of life watchdog reporter for the Democrat & Chronicle
- Kate McArdle, community outreach coordinator for the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute, and board member for the New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR3)
- Gary Carrel, solid waste recycling specialist for the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning, and board member for the New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse and Recycling (NYSAR3)
