In addition to providing a comprehensive overview and analysis of program performance and system costs, this report delves into the economic and environmental benefits of beverage container reuse and recycling, including avoided GHG emissions and municipal cost savings. Recycling processes, end-markets, and the use of recycled content are also discussed.
