These are turbulent times! Recycling is essential to our communities and neighborhoods. Yet, in the midst of the COVID 19 crisis, it’s fallen off many of our radars. Communities that once banned single use plastics and bags are offering these again to reduce the handling of personal cloth bags. Dining and take-out is at an all-time high and carry out containers are on the rise. People are ordering goods and products online like never before in lieu of in-person shopping, increasing the need and use of cardboard boxes and packaging. There are examples everywhere of how our lives have changed, and the ways in which recycling is essential to our communities. Recycling provides livelihoods for millions of Americans, supplies critical raw materials for manufacturing, has numerous environmental benefits, and promotes collaboration among community members to solve real-world problems.
