The Indiana Department of Environmental Management will conduct a statewide recycling study to determine “where the gaps are in the state’s recycling infrastructure,” Indiana Public Media reported June 16.
The study will help the state learn the “hard data and facts” about what recycling infrastructure—from curbside bins to materials recovery facilities—needs funding and help Indiana manufacturers find Indiana-based recycled materials to use as input, Recycling Market Development Program Manager Deanna Garner told the news outlet.
The Department of Environmental Management will post updates from the Recycling Infrastructure and Economics Study throughout the year, it says. It plans to complete the study by June 2021, Indiana Public Media reports. Visit www.in.gov/idem/recycle/2358.htm or bit.ly/2VTzwE9.
