In our efforts to promote increased used packaging recovery, we are both pleased and fortunate to work with a number of federal, regional, state, and local organizations. (See our TAG and Affiliates pages for more information.)
One of the key things we’ve learned from many of them as well as from our own research is that there is no packaging recovery silver bullet: Different locations with differing population densities, economic situations and priorities, political alignments, cultures, and waste collection infrastructures need a number of tools in their waste reduction toolboxes. To this end, we are working to implement the knowledge gained from our 100 Cities and Financial Platforms research so that we can help to effectively increase packaging recovery with maximum economic efficiency.
We’d love to share our learning with you, and to have you share yours with us!
