Guest Host: Susan Page

Americans began to get serious about recycling in the late eighties. Today, some localities recycle as much as 50% of their residential waste. Some thinkers in environmental policy believe recycling has achieved its potential, and further development of such programs is unlikely to provide real benefits without becoming prohibitively expensive. A panel talks about the achievements of recycling and what lies ahead for environmentally-minded U.S. communities.


  • Dr. Winston Porter President of the Waste Policy Center and former EPA employee
  • Neil Seldman President of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance
  • Annette Mills Recycling coordinator for the City of Falls Church, Virginia
