Dow Joins the Recycling Partnership
The Dow Chemical Company has signed on as a funding sponsor of The Recycling Partnership. The collaboration is considered an important step in Dow’s journey to reach its 2025 Sustainability Goals, which include turning materials formerly considered waste into new products.
The Recycling Partnership is an industry collaboration focused on systematically and measurably improving curbside recycling in the United States. The Recycling Partnership continues to deliver tangible results, improving recovery of high quality recyclables for manufacturing feedstock across the country. In 2015 the national nonprofit leveraged USD 11 million of new recycling infrastructure that positively impacted 1.2 million households. In 2016, The Recycling Partnership will further transform the secondary material landscape, with curbside cart launches and quality improvement programs already slated for a number of cities, adding to the 165,000 carts delivered last year. Dow marks the 23rd member of The Recycling Partnership, further expanding the group’s resources and reach.
