Plastics Industry Highly Supportive of EPA’s National Recycling Strategy
7 Dec, 2020
Members of the Plastics Association Leaders Group issued the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) request for input into its proposed national recycling strategy:
“The recent recycling goal announced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that calls for an increase in the national recycling rate to 50% by 2030 (“50 by 30”) will promote collaboration and partnership with government, materials manufacturers, brands, non-profits, and NGOs. Collaboration is the key to advancing a more circular and sustainable system for plastics and keeping them out of the environment where they don’t belong.
“We applaud the EPA for taking up this process to establish a national recycling strategy for the 21st century to ensure more recyclable materials are collected, processed, and manufactured into new products.
“Our industry looks forward to being a valued partner and lending our expertise to support this ambitious goal.”
