Recycling & Recovery Goals
Solving the complex challenge of recycling collection and improving waste management requires everyone to play a role. Plastics producers, product manufacturers, retailers, recyclers and waste haulers, as well as communities, nonprofits, and federal, state and local governments must come together to support the circular solutions and infrastructure this problem requires. Our Guiding Principles, together with ACC’s Roadmap to Reuse, focus on the key policies needed to implement these goals.
Recycling & Recovery Fact
In the last three years, 64 projects in mechanical and advanced recycling in the U.S have been announced, valued at $6 billion. Together, these projects have the potential to divert more than a million metric tons (approximately 8.9 billion pounds) of waste from landfills each year.
