EPA America Recycles Day Summit & Pledge
On America Recycles Day 2018 (November 15), SWANA participated in a Recycling Summit where EPA and dozens of other key stakeholders signed a pledge to commit to work together to improve the state of the recycling system in the United States.
SWANA is working to help fulfill this pledge through the development of EPA’s Framework for Advancing America’s Recycling System over the course of 2019. These efforts are focused on (1) education and outreach, (2) enhancing materials management infrastructure, (3) strengthening secondary materials markets, and (4) enhancing measurement.
