75% Recycling by 2015
Please sign GAIA’s letter to President Obama asking him to set a national recycling rate of 75% of all municipal solid waste by the year 2015. Please enter all of the information requested below. Only your name, city, and state or country will appear on the petition.
At least 15 million people around the world depend upon recycling for their livelihoods. Here, in the U.S., recycling industries sustain more than ten times the number of jobs as waste incinerators and landfills.
Recycling is one of the fastest, most affordable and effective ways for a community to reduce its carbon footprint, eliminate toxic pollution and create thousands of long-term jobs. However, currently less than one third of municipal waste in the U.S. is recycled and billions of taxpayer dollars are spent each year to subsidize incinerators and landfills.
We ask you to please set a national goal of recycling 75% of all municipal solid waste by the year 2015, and prioritize this goal by ending federal subsidies for incinerators and landfills and investing in recycling jobs for a zero waste economy.
