Recycling – Consumer Brands Association Calls for Standardized Definitions

In the report, Consumer Brands renews its call for federal definitions of recycling, something that the Environmental Protection Agency has said it will take on in its impending National Recycling Strategy … There are currently more than 9,800 recycling systems across the United States, each with their own unique set of rules and standards — including whether to recycle at all …” #Recycling #SingleUsePlastic #PlasticWaste @consumerbrands
