We agree that plastic recycling isn’t a panacea for plastics waste. However the reality is that the world won’t just stop making plastic tomorrow, so what do we do today?
We must partner to do the hard but impactful work of building a better system; one that focuses on reducing, reusing and then recycling all we can. That’s why The Recycling Partnership remains committed to working with all stakeholders, including companies that produce plastics, to make recycling better.
Together we can deliver a transparent and accountable system that delivers recycling’s enormous economic and environmental benefits. Here’s our 5-point plan to deliver a better U.S. recycling system.
