NAPCOR shares progress report on PET thermoform recycling

The National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR), Charlotte, North Carolina, has worked with stakeholders to improve the collection and recycling of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) thermoform packaging, including clamshells, cups, tubs, lids, boxes, trays, egg cartons and similar rigid, nonbottle packaging. 

Over the past five years, the number of PET thermoforms recycled has continued to grow, NAPCOR says. In 2018, according to the "NAPCOR 2018 PET Recycling Report," the U.S. and Canada recycled 139 million pounds of PET thermoform packaging, a 60 percent increase from 2017.
