The Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers (APR), North America’s largest alliance of plastics reclaimers, represents companies totaling over 94% of the post-consumer plastic processing capacity in the United States, Mexico and Canada. APR actively seeks new ways to strengthen the economically viable, and environmentally responsible recycling of post-consumer plastics.
There is strong demand for new feedstock to meet the ever-growing demand for recycled resin material. Recyclable rigid plastics, of the type found “behind the counter” in full-line supermarkets, provide valuable feedstock to plastics reclaimers and other industry stakeholders.
This website has been developed by APR, with assistance from the American Chemistry Council, and is the result of 2-1/2 years of work that included two studies. It has been created to provide a useful tool for the grocery industry as they look for new ways to “green” their operations.
