Quest recycling participates to “Action to accelerate recycling”
Quest Recycling’s CEO, Brian Dick, participated to “ Action to Accelerate Recycling” which took place in Dallas, TX on February 10 and 11, 2012. The event was sponsored by Alcoa and was produced with the assistance of other 'Founders Circle' firms and groups, such as Waste Management, Owens-Illinois and the National Association for PET Container Resources. The attendees represented more than 70 % of the soft drink industry, 90 % of the glass container market and all of the aluminum cansheet industry. Executives from paper and plastic recycling firms were also at the meeting, as were those representing recycling collection and processing firms, and local and state governments. The goal of the working meeting was to produce a plan to boost recycling rates by 20 % points in three years. Attendees were asked to consider ways to make 'recycling the social norm, not the exception.'
“Quest was honored to be invited to be a part of this event and team” Brian Dick said. “The initiatives and goals of this group will be a tremendous benefit to increasing the recycling rates in the US. I was truly impressed by the spirit, talent and belief exhibited during the event and I am excited to continue assisting in their efforts!”
