Abstract:

This report responds to the Subcommittees October 8, 1987, request that we examine various aspects of wastepaper recycling activities of federal agencies. In particular, the report addresses 1 the extent to which agencies have carried out responsibilities mandated by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 to establish wastepaper recycling programs, 2 the causes for shortcomings in carrying out these responsibilities, and 3 obstacles that stand in the way of expanded federal wastepaper recycling efforts. The report also contains recommendations to the Environmental Protection Agency and the General Services Administration.
