One thing the Obama "green" plan is likely to definitely have are very large new subsidies for conversion of biomass into energy. My guess is that any benefit recycled materials get through higher demand for materials in construction projects will be far outweighed by a continued erosion of the relative competitiveness of recycling versus waste-to-energy technologies due to poorly thought out public policies.
