Pallone and Tonko Announce Legislative Hearing on Bills to Solve America’s Broken Recycling System
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee Chairman Paul Tonko (D-NY) announced that the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee will hold a fully remote legislative hearing on Thursday, June 30, at 11:30 a.m. (EDT) on several bills to repair and improve our nation’s recycling system. The hearing is entitled, “No Time to Waste: Solutions for America’s Broken Recycling System.”
“Our broken recycling system is a growing burden on our environment, businesses, and communities. Countless Americans across the country recycle every day in an effort to do their part to scale back waste and pollution, and it’s time Congress did its part to get our recycling system back on track,” Pallone and Tonko said. “Each of the bills we’ll consider present important and creative fixes for our broken system. Together they represent a robust set of solutions for strengthening our domestic supply chains and ensuring this critical environmental tool is effective and efficient. We look forward to discussing them more next week.”
This hearing will be conducted remotely via Cisco Webex video conferencing. Members of the public may view the hearing via live webcast accessible on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website. Please note the webcast will not be available until the hearing begins.
