Berry Global, Inc., has joined The Recycling Partnership (TRP), a national nonprofit that applies corporate funding to improve recycling efforts in communities across the country.
Since 2015, TRP has assisted more than 500 communities in improving their recycling efforts, reaching more than 26 million households. It has also invested more than $27 million in corporate funding in recycling infrastructure.
“Our mission of ‘Always Advancing to Protect What’s Important’ is in direct alignment with the efforts pursued by The Recycling Partnership,” said Berry CEO Tom Salmon. “By collaborating with The Recycling Partnership, we will be assisting in their efforts to further expand access to recycling in cities and towns across the United States.”
Recycling is a core component of Berry’s commitment to sustainability. In addition to encouraging consumer recycling, the company also works to decrease landfill waste in its own operations. In addition, Berry is committed to reducing the intensity of its greenhouse gas emissions and to prioritizing the EPA framework of reduce, reuse and recycle.
“Recycling in the U.S. is far from perfect,” said TRP CEO Keefe Harrison. “Working closely with industry leaders like Berry allows us to expand access to recycling in communities across the nation, unlocking the environmental and economic benefits of strong recycling systems. Through these partnerships, we are empowering companies to create a circular economy, while building stronger communities and a cleaner, greener future.”
