ISRI Applauds New Jersey Passage of Recycled Content Legislation

(Washington, DC) -  Following months of advocating on behalf of recyclers in New Jersey along with its New Jersey Chapter and Plastics Division, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) today released the following statement on the passage of bill S2515/A4676 by the New Jersey State Assembly. The bill establishes post-consumer recycled content requirements for rigid plastic containers, glass containers, paper and plastic carryout bags, and plastic trash bags; and prohibits sale of polystyrene loose fill packaging. 

“The passage of bill A4676 by the New Jersey State Assembly reflects a strong commitment to not only increase the use of recycled content in packaging materials, but to develop a sustainable program with quantifiable metrics and realistic goals. This will help increase stakeholder commitment throughout the supply chain to ensure plastics are responsibly manufactured, collected, and recycled into new products. ISRI is excited about the opportunity the passage of A4676 presents for the state of New Jersey, and we stand ready to provide essential third-party advice and technical expertise in plastics recycling and manufacturing.”
