Interview a Scientist – Plastic Recycling

Event Date: 
September 13, 2022

On Sept. 13, 2022, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET, plastic recycling expert Dr. Kate O'Neill, a professor of environmental science, policy and management at UC Berkeley, will be available for broadcast-quality 1-on-1 Zoom interviews. She can discuss why some jurisdictions have suspended their recycling programs and what research says about the potential implications of state-level recycling legislation such as “extended responsibility,” “polluter pay,” and “advanced recycling” laws.

Reporters can book a 15-min interview slot here.
