Through the memorandum of understanding (MOU), interested companies and associations are pooling funds and
coordinating work efforts. The outcome will result in recycling successes far stronger than individual investments alone. Projects are expected to begin in July 2014 and continue through 2015 and beyond.
In short, the SERDC 120 group answered the following key questions:
What work and targeted activities will best increase recycling?
Where, when, at what price, and with what partners?
While ambitious, the work was organized, fast-paced, and engaged many of the leading packaging and recycling experts in the United States.The creation of the Recycling Partnership, a premier public-private partnership, conveys the success of SERDC 120. The Recycling Partnership is launching projects to increase recycling rates across the Southeast. While the effort is starting in the Southeast, there is the understanding that the process can, and hopefully will, be expanded
beyond the Southeast.
