Overview Industry Overview:

By utilizing converting resources that would normally be wasted into new products – or into feedstocks for new products – recycling has the potential to play a significant role in forging a sustainable future. The numerous environmental benefits of recycling include conservation of natural resources, and reduced greenhouse gas and pollution emissions. It increases economic security by tapping into a domestic source of materials, and by creating jobs in reprocessing and manufacturing.

Some countries around the world, including Australia and the Netherlands, have already reached recycling rates of 60% or greater. Additionally, a number of cities, like New York and San Francisco, have set zero waste policy goals, as have a number of corporations, like Wal-Mart and Nike. In order to secure recycling’s place as a key factor of the environmental movement, scientists and consumers must work hand-in-hand to keep reclamation processes economically and environmentally efficient. New technologies have significantly enhanced the efficacy of commingled and single stream collection, as machines are able to identify and sort both recyclable and waste materials from one another with little to no human assistance.
