During 1995 through 1998, NERC coordinated state input on the development of a uniform methodology for reporting state recycling data and calculating state recycling rates. The methodology was developed by Eastern Research Group, Inc., for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The methodology was designed to promote consistency in the way state governmental agencies collect and report recycling data. Through this project four states and the District of Columbia tested the methodology. The state demonstrations were completed in March 1998, and a final report on the project was submitted to EPA in August 1998. NERC's partner in the project was the Council of State Governments' Midwestern Office. Funding for NERC's work was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
