Survey shows bipartisan support for recycling refund programs
By Megan Smalley
A public opinion poll found that 81 percent of Americans support recycling refund programs. Washington-based Lincoln Park Strategies conducted the poll, which surveyed 1,000 U.S. adults in June 2022 with a 3 percent margin of error.
According to the survey, support for these programs was strong and consistent across all political and demographic groups. Residents of states with existing recycling refund programs expressed the highest level of support at 90 percent. Currently, 10 states plus Guam offer recycling refund programs in the United States.
