The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) is the international trade association representing the plastics recycling industry. In North America, there is an every-growing demand for recyclable plastics. Rigid plastics, found “behind the counter” in full-line supermarkets, is valuable feedstock to plastic reclaimers and can help fulfill part of this demand.
This APR website, developed with assistance from the American Chemistry Council, has been created for the grocery store industry as they “green” their operations – both financially and environmentally – by recycling rigid plastics. There’s great value in recycling grocery rigid plastics – when a 1,000 pound OCC bale’s value was $70, the same size bale of #2 HDPE or #5 PP’s value was $250.
