220302 Recycling Legislation Sen EPW


March 02, 2022


Dear Chairman Carper and Ranking Member Capito:

The undersigned organizations commend you and the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works for the recent hearing on recycling and composting, in particular the Recycling and Composting Accountability Act and the Recycling Infrastructure and Accessibility Act. We agree that better understanding current recycling rates and accessibility of recycling infrastructure and solid waste collection in disadvantaged communities add important tools that can bolster the circular economy and increase recycling in communities across the United States.

These bills build on the recycling provisions contained in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, together with important actions in the new National Recycling Strategy.

We look forward to working with you to advance this legislation and other policies that prioritize materials neutral, circular approaches.

Please feel free to contact us should you require additional information.
