WM + Dow Rollout First Major Residential Plastic Film Recycling Program in the U.S.
WM and Dow announced the launch of a bold new collaboration to improve residential recycling for hard-to-recycle plastic films by allowing consumers in select markets to recycle these materials directly in their curbside recycling.
This collaboration builds on WM and Dow’s continued support for a more expansive recycling system across the country. Once operating at full capacity, this program is expected to help WM divert more than 120,000 metric tons (MT) of plastics film from landfills annually.
Dow is supporting this initiative by incorporating recycled content into its product solutions, in line with the company’s ambitious, updated Transform the Waste sustainability commitment to deliver 3 million metric tons of circular and renewable solutions by 2030.
