A collaborative and voluntary process, the survey focuses on data from processors and end users of recyclables. The Study seeks to not only assess current recycling efforts, but it also will identify methods to increase recycling, as well as funding methods to increase recycling and associated job creation and infrastructure needs that will result from a more robust materials recovery industry in Texas. The Study is being led by Burns & McDonnell, under contract to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
In order for the Study to be successful, participation is crucial. Industry representatives and recyclers in Texas are encouraged to contribute to this effort and to help spread the word through their various professional networks. The survey will close to participants on October 31st. The results of the survey will be included in the TCEQ report, "Municipal Solid Waste in Texas: A Year in Review, 2016 Data Summary and Analysis."
