  • The Economics of Recycling in the US—Can It Pay for Itself?
    • Authors: Marc Rogoff

For those of us in the solid waste industry recommending programs to increase recycling as a means of promoting sustainability, the question now becomes: can recycling pay for itself in 2016?The post The Economics of Recycling in the US—Can It Pay for Itself? appeared first on Forester Network.
