SERDC Executive Director joined industry leaders for America Recycles Day. Sagar spoke on Capitol Hill of the increasing
demand and economic benefits of recycling.
"Across the country we bury or burn nearly $5 Billion of recyclable commodities every year. And we pay to do so. Indeed, our research says our SE region could have 21,500 more private sector jobs if those states just recycled 10% more material. Small incremental improvements can lead to significant results."
