Recycling is something upon which all can agree. Helping to advance the clean energy economy, recycling is a multi-billion dollar industry that employs millions of Americans.

  • Nonprofit organization As You Sow estimates that the value of discarded packaging in the U.S. is worth 11.4 billion dollars.1
