Waste Dive breaks down ILSR’s recent report, Why Should Baltimore Recycle More?, and interviews Neil Seldman, Director of the Waste to Wealth initiative. Neil talks about ILSR’s work in Baltimore and how the strategies outlined in the report would increase recycling and create hundreds of new jobs.

Here’s an excerpt:

ILSR recommends investing in new small-scale MRFs within the city, along with composting sites and a resource recovery park that could refurbish items for reuse. The report also sees potential for other programs such as a pay-as-you-throw system, standardized recycling carts, educational awareness campaigns, student internships in the industry and a host of other ideas to operate in conjunction with this new infrastructure.
