To some it can cause great injustice: illegal dumping, pollution and siting concerns damage health and quality of life. Learn from national experts and brainstorm with local advocates about ways we can improve recycling and waste reduction. Understand the City of Houston’s controversial “One Bin for All” plan that could implement "waste-to-energy" technologies.
