On the surface, municipal recycling programs have been one of the great success stories of the past century. The recycling rate overall has tripled in the past 30 years, resulting in 68 million tons of materials diverted from landfills each year.
But the reality is starkly different. The current economic model for recycling is unsustainable, imperiling municipal recycling programs that have been in place for decades. Shifts in end market demands, limited public awareness about what and how to recycle, and broad misperceptions about the real costs of recycling further complicate the landscape.
If recycling is to survive, leaders must develop robust and resilient strategies.
