MCEC Roundtable - The Problem with Plastics

Upcoming MCEC Roundtable: The Problem with Plastics

Do you want to help reduce plastic pollution? Do you, your friends or neighbors struggle to understand what can and cannot be recycled? If so, join the Monmouth County Environmental Council for a roundtable event to discuss the "The Problem with Plastics." The event will include a tabling session focused on initiatives to reduce plastic pollution including successful municipal bans and outreach efforts, as well as a speaker session. Speakers include:  NY/NJ Baykeeper to discuss local microplastics research, the Monmouth County Assistant District Recycling Coordinator who will explain the County recycling process, as well as a representative from Atlantic Coast Recycling who will provide insight into the recycling market.

The Monmouth County Environmental Council will also present the latest Eco-Tips brochure focused on tips to reduce plastic consumption and understanding the recycling process. To view other Eco-Tips brochures, click here.

We invite you to highlight your successes during the “Be Part of the Plastic Pollution Solution” tabling session. Participants will be highlighted in the November edition of the the Environmental Newsletter. Email Amber Mallm to be part of the tabling session and let your efforts shine.
