The Recycling Partnership has launched a new initiative, the Circular Economy Accelerator, that will proactively drive policy solutions for stronger recycling and a robust circular economy in the United States.
“Consumers, businesses, and policymakers recognize that the U.S. recycling system is facing a critical inflection point—but we see it as an opportunity,” said Sarah Dearman, Executive Director of the Circular Economy Accelerator. “By leveraging public-private solutions to drive sustainable investment in recycling infrastructure and implementing policies that incentivize recycling over disposal, we can put the U.S. on the path to a truly circular economy.”
The Circular Economy Accelerator will bring together forward-thinking companies to build consensus for attainable policy and legislative solutions at the state and federal level to incentivize recycling over disposal and expedite public-private solutions for circular systems.
“America doesn’t have time to wait for a better recycling system. Current global market challenges pose serious headwinds to community recycling programs,” said Keefe Harrison, CEO of The Recycling Partnership. “The Circular Economy Accelerator will jump-start the critical conversations to advance the recycling system so that recyclable materials make it from citizens’ recycling bins back to store shelves as new products.”
