Design Guide for Foodservice Plastics Recyclability

This document was developed in partnership by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) and the Foodservice Packaging Institute (FPI). It draws heavily on the APR Design® Guide for Plastics Recyclability, the most comprehensive resource outlining the plastics recycling industry’s recommendations in the marketplace today. In this document, FPI and APR have adapted the APR Design® Guide to specifically address foodservice packaging and other plastic foodservice items.

The primary intended audience for the APR / FPI Design® Guide for Foodservice Plastics Recyclability is the foodservice packaging supply chain, particularly raw material suppliers, packaging manufacturers and foodservice operators. The guide is designed to provide a basic education on the recycling process and to support decision making related to packaging formats and components that impact recyclability
