Promoting Recycling and Reducing Hazardous Wastes

What Can You Save Today? Resource Conservation ChallengeEPA launched the Resource Conservation Challenge (RCC), a national effort to encourage manufacturers, businesses, and consumers to raise the national recycling rate to 35 percent. EPA also launched the voluntary "Waste Minimization Partnership Program" to help achieve the 50 percent reduction national goal for 30 harmful chemicals. As part of the RCC, EPA launched a new campaign: "Plug-In To Recycling Campaign," a partnership among Best Buy, AT&T Wireless, Sony, Panasonic, Dell, Sharp, and others. The partnership will work to raise Americans' awareness of the value of reusing and recycling electronics and to provide the public with more opportunities to do so across the country. This campaign is one of several new EPA efforts under the Agency's Resource Conservation Challenge.
