Recycling & compost

Nearly all of America’s trash could be composted and recycled. But we’ve got a lot of work to do to get there.

Most of us put our recyclables out for collection. But it’s going to take more than individual action to deal with our trash problem. Only 24% of our trash actually gets recycled, and only 9% gets composted. We can do better. Together we can share information, resources and push our leaders to build a better recycling and composting system.
