Holding the Course: Domestic Reactions to Recycling Markets Spur Hope, Not Despair
By LIz Bedard, from The Recycling Partnership Blog
As an employee of both The Recycling Partnership and the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), I have the unique privilege of viewing the recycling industry from all sides.
Suppliers, manufacturers, MRFs, haulers, residents, communities, corporations: you name the audience, I’ve talked to them about recycling.
From this vantage point, my main message to communities is this: Hold the course. Long-term recycling is sound and well-rooted.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. You can – and should! – take heart in knowing that industry leaders and big-name corporations are investing in recycling solutions to help your programs thrive, both now and in the future.
