Texas Launches A Recycling and Recyclables in Manufacturing Survey


Next month the State of Texas is launching a survey to document recycling and the use of recyclables in manufacturing statewide. It will also evaluate multiple recycling economic issues.

The results of the survey will be made available to the 87th Texas Legislative Session, along with a Recycling Market Development Plan, which will provide recommendations for Texas policy makers to utilize the economic, environmental and policy issues of interest to Texas businesses, citizens, and governmental agencies.

The survey will provide recommendations on how to support and grow the Texas recycling industry. In addition, an educational campaign will be developed to highlight the economic benefits of recycling, the companies in Texas utilizing recycled feedstock, and contamination reduction messaging.

“The Recycling Market Development Plan will build on the successful foundation of the Study on the Economic Impacts of Recycling. We invite recyclers and manufacturers from throughout the supply chain to participate in this year’s effort, as their help will be essential to develop resilient, future-looking recycling markets for Texas-generated materials,” said Scott Pasternak, Burns & McDonnell Senior Project Manager, who is managing the Recycling Market Development Plan.

The data will help Texas build a stronger, more circular materials management system in the state, which ultimately means more jobs and revenue for Texas cities and businesses, and less waste.
