PLASTICS Applauds Introduction of Bipartisan Recycling Legislation


Tony Radoszewski, President & CEO of the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) issued the following statement in support of the bipartisan Plastic Waste Reduction and Recycling Act introduced today by Representatives Haley Stevens (D-MI) and Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH). The bill would improve the federal government’s recycling research and development coordination.

“This commonsense, bipartisan legislation will go a long way in laying the groundwork to significantly improve recycling in America. Representatives Stevens and Gonzalez have shown incredible leadership in making clear progress towards a more sustainable economy. We are eager to work with every member of Congress to ensure this bill gets over the finish line and signed into law.”

“We know there are innovative companies ready to use more recycled material to create new products and prevent waste from entering the environment. This is a win-win for American innovation and our environment.”
