Sample article from our Government & Public Policy

WASHINGTON , February 3, 2022 (press release) –

The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) President and CEO Heidi Brock issued the following statement in support of the Recycling and Composting Accountability Act (RCAA), introduced by U.S. Senators Tom Carper (D-DE), John Boozman (R-AR) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and the Recycling Infrastructure and Accessibility Act (RIAA), introduced by Senator Capito (R-WV).

“The paper and wood products industry is a leader in sustainability and recycling. Nearly two-thirds of paper used in the U.S. was recycled in 2020, including nearly 89 percent of all cardboard boxes and corrugated containers. In addition, our industry has planned or announced approximately $5 billion in manufacturing infrastructure investments from 2019-2023 to continue the best use of recycled fiber in our products.

“The RCAA will advance recycling and composting in the United States by helping the Environmental Protection Agency improve their measurement, data and reporting tools. The RCIA will improve recycling accessibility in communities, including historically underserved communities. AF&PA applauds the leadership of Senators Carper, Boozman and Capito, and encourages Congress to pass these bills into law.”
