EPA Seeks Public Comment on the Recycling Infrastructure and Market Opportunities Map
EPA’s Recycling Infrastructure and Market Opportunities Map, which was released on April 21, 2023, is now open for public comment through June 26, 2023.
The map displays existing recycling and municipal solid waste infrastructure, estimated per capita generation and recycling of post-consumer material, and other relevant market factors.
By providing a comprehensive resource for understanding opportunities about post-consumer materials management, this map can help develop and strengthen primary and secondary end markets for materials, support cleaner communities by reducing the amount of plastic and other waste entering landfills, and provide opportunities to address climate change by diverting more materials from landfills.
EPA seeks public comment on currently available data and information used in the map, specifically about the accuracy and completeness of the data, ease of use, graphics, and future updates.
