"Greening" Government Procurement

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Executive Order 13101 require the government to purchase items containing recovered (recycled) materials to the maximum extent possible on certain items. U.S. EPA, as the lead agency in this effort, provides information to assist in accomplishing this requirement. To learn more about how to comply with these requirements please see "Greening" Government Procurement.
