CRRC's Media Response to the Recycling Markets Crisis

This Media Kit is designed to:

  • Educate your cities, counties, LEAs, etc. about the financial impacts of the markets crisis and the likelihood of necessary rate increases
  • Educate state and local governments on the need to incentivize domestic market/infrastructure development

This Media Kit is available to you and the public so that you can share it with your jurisdictions about the reality of the Recycling Markets crisis. We've been hearing from our members that many cities and counties are unsure about the magnitude of the crisis. This Media Kit will give you the back-up you need, as the resources on the page will continue to be built on a daily basis from all of the press (TV, newspaper, radio, social media) that is being generated.

Our talking points, and yours as well, include:

  • China National Sword and the impact on markets
  • The true cost of recycling and the cost per household (what once was a funding stream to offset rates is now a cost)
  • Education to address contamination to residents (keep recycling items in your recycling cart – but clean up the stream)

Check back here on a regular basis. If you are meeting with press, be sure to send them here as well.
