Recycling Rigid Plastics Beyond Bottles: Resources to Support MRFs and Municipalities 

Tuesday, September 6th at 1:00 pm EST

 

The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), works to increase the amount of plastic recycled, and to strengthen the economic viability of plastics recycling.  An annual survey of the largest communities in each of the fifty US states and Washington, DC  indicates that  the number of communities collecting #1-7 containers more than doubled from 2009 to 2014. Although this is great news, many cities have still not followed this trend.  Recycling rigid plastics beyond PET and HDPE bottles presents certain challenges,  but many North American reclaimers are interested in buying non-bottle rigid plastic material.    This webinar will provide an overview of the resources, developed by the APR,  for MRFs and Municipalities to support the expansion of plastics collected.
