Washington D.C.— Waste360 has featured an op-ed written by Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) VP of Sustainability, Patrick Krieger on America Recycles Day and how we can improve recycling in America and across the world.
“We need to work to increase recycling rates, both here in America and across the world. Events like America Recycles Day remind us that while consumers do play an important role towards increasing recycling, more work must be done by environmental stakeholders, industry, and government to make that happen. We know that there are solutions available to meet our shared sustainability goals on recycling as well as specific actions we can take to get it done, together.”
