Since China banned the import of most recyclable material at the beginning of this year, curbside recycling programs in the United States have been in the spotlight. A new study among over 2,000 Americans conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) reveals how curbside recycling programs in the U.S. are perceived and provides insights on how they can be strengthened to improve the quality and supply of recyclable material. Municipalities have sought ways to improve collection and sortation. Nearly 8 in 10 Americans have curbside programs where they live (79%). Of those with programs, almost 9 in 10 find the recycling services to be valuable (88%). It is split nearly in half between those who feel these programs are effective and efficient, compared to those who believe they can be improved (43% to 45%).
