Plastic Waste – Recycling Legislation Sought by Plastic Manufacturers

According to a November 17, 2020 news release, the American Chemistry Council (ACC) “… called on Congress to work with industry to prioritize recycling legislation in 2021. ‘The plastics industry has set an ambitious goal of reusing, recycling or recovering 100% of plastic packaging in the U.S. by 2040.  

We look forward to working with Congress on ways to create more circular solutions for plastics. Last month we released a Roadmap to Reuse, a framework that outlines steps to grow recycling and recovery in the U.S., and guiding principles for eliminating plastic waste that can help shape legislation and other actions to help grow recycling and recovery of plastics’ …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Recycling #ACC
