EPA Requests Comments on National Recycling Strategy

On October 5, 2020, EPA released a draft National Recycling Strategy for public input. Recycling has been a critical component of the EPA’s decades-long efforts to implement the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and its more recent efforts to pursue a Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) approach, which aims to reduce the environmental impacts of materials across their lifecycle. Building on the National Framework for Advancing the U.S. Recycling System and EPA’s long history of providing data, tools, information and other resources to support recycling in the United States, the draft strategy identifies strategic objectives and actions needed to create a stronger, more resilient, and cost-effective U.S. municipal solid waste recycling system.

Comments will be accepted until 11:59 PM ET on December 4, 2020, with the goal of finalizing it in early 2021.
