Tell Your Senators to Support Better Recycling and Composting Infrastructure

There’s been an exciting development in the push for better recycling and composting infrastructure in America. Senators Tom Carper, Shelley Moore Capito, and John Boozman recently introduced two bills that were approved unanimously by the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee.

Read our blog to learn more about the legislation and why it is so important.

  • The Recycling and Composting Accountability Act (S.3743) would improve the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) collection of data on recycling and composting facility performance to support more data-driven waste management infrastructure policies.
  • The Recycling Infrastructure and Accessibility Act (S.3742) would establish a pilot program to promote recycling in underserved communities. The goal of the program is to significantly improve access to recycling.

By sending a letter to your Senators, you will let them know you support better recycling and composting infrastructure for your state and nationwide.
