APR sharpening its focus on film recycling
A trade group representing post-consumer plastic recyclers is ramping up efforts to improve film reclamation, further expanding its reach in the process.
The Association of Plastic Recyclers has been increasingly active in the film recycling arena in recent years, but has taken the added step of bringing on a new, dedicated employee to further those efforts.
Hiring Sandi Childs to direct its flexible films recovery work is an important step for the relatively small, but growing trade group that has been broadening its scope in recent years.
“It’s a natural evolution in terms of APR of where we’ve been and what we’ve been doing,” said APR Executive Director Steve Alexander. “Up until seven, eight years ago, we were PET and high-density bottles.”
