It’s time we get recycling right

Not everything we put into the recycling stream is actually recycled – only 23% of waste sent to recycling is reused. But we can improve our recycling system. Packaging Stewardship ensures more packaging is recycled and composted by developing the infrastructure needed to protect the environment.

A Packaging Stewardship Program can fix our recycling system.

Just because our recycling system isn’t working for all materials, doesn’t mean it can’t be fixed. By implementing a Packaging Stewardship Program, we’ll ensure the critical infrastructure needed is funded to recycle packaging that too often ends up as waste.
