2017 APR Plastics Recycling Educational Webinar: Residential Bulky Rigid Plastics
Recycling Rigid Plastics Beyond Bottles: Resources to Encourage MRFs and Municipalities to Expand Collection
Since 2009 the Association of Plastics Recyclers (APR) has conducted a survey to evaluate each state’s largest municipality’s residential plastics collection programs, and the growing trend continues to be: Recycling Rigid Plastics Beyond Bottles. APR’s Recycling Rigid Plastics Beyond Bottles Toolkits were developed to provide resources to support state and local solid waste management and recycling officials to enhance their collection programs, increase the amount of material collected by those programs, and add value to the bottom line.
The webinar will provide an overview of each of the toolkit’s resources which include: Success Stories, Market Information, Education, Flowcharts and Videos, Remanufacturing / Applications, and FAQs. Additional information to support expanding collection will also be provided.
