  IBWA Announces Support of Recycling Legislation in Press Release
Last week, IBWA issued a press release explaining its support of the Recycling Infrastructure and Accessibility Act (RIAA) and the Recycling and Composting Accountability Act (RCAA), as these key pieces of legislation are critical to improving recycling efforts nationwide. 
“The Recycling Infrastructure and Accessibility Act will create a pilot program to help fund recycling programs in underserved areas,” says IBWA President and CEO Joe Doss. “We believe this bill will help boost recycling rates around the country and divert items from landfills.”
The RCAA would require the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to collect and distribute data on recycling and composting rates across the country to provide an accurate reflection of both national and state-level performance.
“We believe that increasing consumer access to recycling programs is an essential part of closing the loop of the recycling process,” says Mr. Doss. “And it helps to ensure that post-consumer recyclable materials are kept out of landfills and are instead reused again and again by industry to create products consumers want.”
