Review for Container Recycling Institute, Culver City, CA, USA
Container Recycling Institute (CRI) has played a vital, positive role in the national, state and local recycling and sustainable materials management scene for many years. CRI is focused on results, not environmentalist "religion" nor corporate bottom lines nor consumer convenience. CRI supports beverage container deposit legislation because it works better than any other approach (so far). CRI questions the long run wisdom of single-stream recycling collection because of demonstrated degraded materials quality when compared to greater source separation. Under the leadership of Susan Collins, they have sharpened their focus on data-driven policy positions that point us to a sustainable future. CRI generously has provided support to local, state and national efforts to adopt laws, programs and policies that will help conserve resources in an increasingly polluted world. CRI is an "in the trenches" advocate for all of us.
