State Recycling Resources

Recent global shifts have provided states, cities and counties with opportunities to explore innovations to their recycling programs to make them more effective, efficient and successful.

NCSL has gathered a variety of resources that showcase state efforts to increase recycling rates, reduce landfill waste and create economic opportunities. These include, but are not limited to, recycling end-market development, providing grants to support recycling infrastructure, implementing cart tagging programs and providing community education programs.
