This playbook provides a framework and pathway for utilizing a suite of effective public and private measures to improve the economics of plastic waste collection.

The playbook focuses on four overarching strategies: finance the collection, reduce problematic and unnecessary single-use plastics, design circularity, and develop recycling/treatment markets. In developing these recommendations, over 180 measures were consolidated into a list of 43 measures, which were evaluated in detail.

The playbook provides details on implementation and impact of each of the measures and quantifies how they can be combined to address the net financing gap for collection (US $3 billion per year across focus countries).
