The Association of Plastic Recyclers

Keep Your Caps On! A 2015 Update Presented October 27, 2015

Due to an ever growing demand for material by plastic reclaimers, APR continues to support the "Caps On" message. Historically, the perception has been that the best way to recycle a plastic bottle is with the cap off. Today, with growing markets for HDPE and PP, coupled with improved recycling technology, plastic recyclers support keeping the cap on for reclamation. Many communities have already updated their messaging to adapt to the new industry standard, and the plastic recycling industry is eager to help communities explore how best to recover as much plastic as possible. This web seminar will give an update on this initiative, address the common concerns surrounding the change, and provide resources to those communities to support this message.
