EPA Contaminant Reduction in Recycling Streams Research Opportunity

Company: ORISE
Location: Trenton
Posted on: January 15, 2022

Job Description:

The US recycling industry is facing major challenges that threaten its viability. Single-stream recycling, while an easier system for consumers, has led to increases in levels of contaminants in recycling, thereby lowering the overall value of materials collected and their viability on international markets.

Research opportunity that seeks to understand why and how some recycling programs continue to succeed in the current challenging environment by answering the following overarching research questions: What are common factors of successful municipal recycling programs, and to what extent is the viability or success of municipal recycling programs dependent on contamination rates? How can states and communities quickly identify communities/neighborhoods with room for improvement in recycling viability and reduction in contamination rates? And finally, what package of interventions is most likely to reduce contamination rates at the local level?

Master's Degree or Doctoral Degree received within the last 60 months or anticipated to be received by 2/28/2021
U.S Citizens only
