Let’s Not Paper Over Our Recycling Success

Heidi Brock writes in RealClearEnergy on the success of America’s paper recycling industry.

The C3 Take
  • In 2021 the recycling rate for cardboard was a robust 91%.
  • The paper recycling industry is voluntarily committing $5 billion in investments to expand paper recycling efforts.
  • This private sector-led investment could be a good model for expanding plastic and canned recycling in the United States.

“Paper recycling is widely accessible and used every day by citizens across our country, and it’s a crucial way to support the circular economy. It is vital we build on these valuable sustainability gains – created over the decades.  Let’s work toward a regulatory climate that strengthens paper recycling’s future success.”
