Senate Resolution 251 was introduced in the US Senate by Senators Tom Carper (D-DE) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME). The resolution, which has been referred to the Environment & Public Works Committee, expresses support for improvement in the collection, processing and use of recyclable materials throughout the US and reinforces the importance of recycling to the US economy. It also highlights the environmental benefits of recycling. Along with others, the NRC helped provide language in the resolution shortly before it was finalized.
