In recognition of National Recycling Day on November 15, WABE News conducted an interview with Professor Beril Toktay, Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business Brady Family Chair in Management and faculty director of the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business. Toktay, along with other guests, discussed the effects of recycling infrastructure and Atlanta’s recycling efforts.   

Toktay noted that while the U.S. has made progress in large-scale recycling, it would do well to follow Europe’s example of creating a federal level collection and recycling bill. Improving the current recycling infrastructure would also bring down costs, which would attract more businesses to actively recycle.
