US EPA LAUNCHES MAJOR RECYCLING INITIATIVE WITH $100 MILLION IN GRANTS


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday announced plans for about $100 million in grants to boost recycling and waste management - its first major effort in these areas in 30 years. The agency's National Recycling Strategy is targeting a 50% recycling rate by 2030, compared with around 32% currently. The rate for recycling plastic waste is only about 5%. It has selected 25 communities to receive over $70 million in grants to improve their recycling facilities and will offer another $32 million to states and territories to implement their own waste management plans.
