Funding New Efforts for Solid Waste Collection and Recycling

According to a January 2, 2020 Plastic News Magazine Staff blog "... a material-neutral plan that puts small fees on single-use packaging, possibly at the wholesale level, would provide a steady stream of funding to support upgrades in waste collection and recycling …”. Because local governments and organizations need billions of dollars to build out needed recycling infrastructure, new plans for generating such funding are needed by the industry. A Federal fee on all types of single use packaging would generate billions of dollars for solid waste collection and recycling programs. Our goal at the Animal Digestible Packaging Initiative is to inspire research and innovation into alternative packaging materials that are digestible by animals.   #SingleUsePlastics #FoodPackaging #PlasticWaste #PlasticPackaging
