NERC has become a signatory to an urgent call for government action requiring recycled content in plastic bags. To date, 27 organizations have become signatories. The industry-led Recycle More Bags coalition proposes using legislative action and procurement policy to drive demand for a minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled content in some types of plastic bags by 2025.
"The Northeast Recycling Council is honored to support this important initiative. We are particularly excited that it is industry led. Demand for recycled content is at the heart of successful recycling, as well as the thousands of jobs that are dependent upon it,” reported Lynn Rubinstein, NERC Executive Director.
