Description: EPA promotes a hierarchy of waste management options that includes waste prevention, followed by recycling, and finally disposal. EPA does not have the authority to require plastic collection and recycling. Plastics are difficult to recycle. States have attempted to improve the plastics recycling rate in a variety of ways. EPA focuses its efforts on creating better markets, improving collection efficiencies, and working with industry to improve the recyclability of the materials. The Jobs Through Recycling (JTR) program concentrates on improving the marketplace for recyclables.
