MACo Advocates for Modernizing the Maryland Recycling Act

MACo Policy Associate Alex Butler today testified before the House Environment and Transportation Committee to support HB 807 Task Force to Review and Update the Maryland Recycling Act. This bill establishes a task force to review and update the Maryland Recycling Act (MRA).

From the MACo Testimony:

The MRA is an important piece of State policy that outlines waste diversion and recycling efforts at the state and local level. Periodic updates to the Act are important to maintaining the relevance and effectiveness of the policy. HB 807 establishes a well-balanced task force charged with examining the MRA for potential updates. The task force would be made up of representatives from state and local government as well as the waste industry.
