Another big-time name is putting its support behind the Recycling Partnership, a non-profit group aimed at boosting curbside recycling.
Procter & Gamble Co. of Cincinnati becomes the latest join the partnership, which relies on funding from private sources to help support improvements in public curbside recycling efforts.
“At P&G, we are working toward a vision that one day no waste will go to landfill. Helping expand and enable recycling efforts is key to helping us reaching that vision,” said Steve Sikra, P&G's global leader for packaging material science and technology, in a statement. “The Recycling Partnership's work is helping build solutions and create value that we hope will increase at-home recycling.”
This increase, Sikra said in his statement, will help provide “more recycled materials for companies like P&G to use in their packaging.”
Other members of the partnership include Amcor Ltd., Coca-Cola Co., Sonoco Products Co., American Chemistry Council, Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers and the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc.
