Proactively Building Demand for Recycled Plastics
The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), the leading international trade organization representing the plastics recycling industry, today announced new participants in a campaign designed to expand market demand for recycled resins and improve plastic recycling in North America. In addition, APR announced it will expand the campaign to include additional applications and material.
The APR Recycling Demand Champions Campaign plays a prominent role in expanding the market for residential plastics, driving investment, increasing supply and producing more high quality PCR. The initial phase of the campaign focused on purchasing new volume PCR through “work in process” (WIP) durable goods, but has expanded to include any and all NEW applications for PCR.
