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.
Here is legislation you could support in your state that promotes Packaging Stewardship
Across the nation, states are embracing solutions to improve their recycling programs. See if your state has introduced Packaging Stewardship legislation and how you can get involved.
