Recycling Activity Reporting

Recycling activity reporting must be done through the Re-TRAC Connect online reporting system. The Recycling Activity Reporting Guidance [PDF] provides an overview and step-by-step instructions.

Recyclers are required to submit reports to IDEM on the amount and type of recyclables they process from Indiana’s waste stream. The Recycle Indiana Fast Facts page provides a quick overview of who reports, as well as deadlines.

Recycling Activity Summary

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is responsible for providing a summary of the information collected from municipal solid waste recyclers, which are mandated to report their recycling activity by the legislature. The reporting tracks shipments of recyclables (tons) by material type and destination category (Indiana recycler facilities, broker arranged, and manufacturers/end users). Annual reports are available as listed below.
