Houston-based Waste Management issued its September 2020 “Report on Recycling” to identify gaps in U.S. plastics recycling infrastructure, among other goals. The report is based on research and data-gathering from consulting firm, Resource Recycling Systems (RRS). RRS was brought about after advocacy group As You Sow called on Waste Management to disclose more information about its plastic management.
As You Sow issued a release this month expressing hope that the report “will serve as a valuable first step in a broader conversation with regulators, packaging producers and consumer brands about policies and practices required to rapidly increase the amount of plastic recycled in the U.S., especially those for which there are existing markets.”
