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.
