Frequent Questions

Who else has used EPA's recycling measurement approach?

To assist with testing the ‘translator’ component of the EPA recycling measurement approach, Pennsylvania and Washington converted their recycling rates using the EPA method. Both states found the EPA method helpful in assessing the status of recycling in their states, and Pennsylvania trained its counties in the use of the method. The Northeast Recycling Council worked with the Northeast states in converting their rates using the translator and posted the information on their web site EPA disclaimer.
