Solid Waste Program Solid Waste Projects Commercial Paper Recycling


The Northeast Commercial Paper Recycling Project was initiated in FY 2010 to focus on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions tied to the manufacturer, transport, and disposal of paper generated by commercial facilities. See Project Background  for more information on the connection between GHG emissions and paper and the origins of the Project.

NEWMOA formed a Commercial Paper Recycling Workgroup that includes representatives from the northeast states' recycling, solid waste, and economic development programs, EPA Regions 1 and 2, and the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) to oversee the Project.

NEWMOA held a Commercial Paper Recycling Stakeholder Summit in July 2010 to gather ideas for significantly increasing commercial paper recycling by generators. NEWMOA is currently seeking funding to implement the results of the Summit [PDF] including:

  • Working with stakeholders to identify, prioritize, and implement regional strategies to increase collection and recycling
  • Encouraging the increased use of recycled paper by paper mills in the region and other domestic end-users
