Arcata Hosting Container Recycling Institute Webinar on December 13th

This is a press release from the City of Arcata:

Arcata, CA – The City of Arcata will be hosting a special webcast, presented by The Container Recycling Institute, titled Return of Refillables in the United States.

The City supports the efforts of a zero waste community, and will be researching the possibility of a cooperative bottle washing venture to serve some Redwood Coast beverage producers.

The City hopes to collaborate with local businesses and stakeholders to make this positive change for our environment, and this webinar will help to inform community members of ways others have approached this goal.

This webinar will focus on refillable containers and will discuss how glass beverage containers are collected, sterilized, refilled and re-sold. Several guest speakers, including business owners, will describe their approach to using and collecting refillable beverage containers from the public and offer guidance to those who attend.

The webcast will be shown at 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 13 in Council Chamber inside City Hall, located at 736 F Street in Arcata.
