The Voice of Plastics Recycling ™
The Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers is the national trade association representing companies who acquire, reprocess and sell the output of more than 90 percent of the post-consumer plastic processing capacity in North America. Our membership includes independent recycling companies of all sizes, processing numerous resins. APR strongly advocates the recycling of all post-consumer plastic packaging, and our goal is simple: we want to increase the amount of plastic material that is recycled in North America. We do that by sponsoring education workshops and webinars designed to help local and state solid waste officials learn more about the technology of plastics recycling and the markets for material; holding APR Design for Recyclability™ workshops for packaging professionals; working to assist legislators to make decisions that enhance the recycling of plastics; and numerous other market development and technical programs. We encourage you to explore this site to learn the latest about recycling programs, technical information, and industry activities designed to enhance the collection of recyclable plastics.
