Study: Pennsylvania’s Recycling Rate Up 22 Percent In 5 Years

Pennsylvania has seen a 22 percent increase in collection of recyclables in five years - from 4.8 million tons to 5.85 million tons, according to a study by PA Waste Industries Association.
Single-stream recycling now accounts for 43 percent of all recovered materials.
The PWIA study, summarized at the 2015 PA Recycling Industries Congress in mid-November, found that the per person volume of recyclables in the state is three-and-a-half times higher than the national average.
