Polypropylene Recycling Coalition awards nearly $2 million in grants

In its initial round of funding, The Recycling Partnership's Polypropylene Recycling Coalition is providing four grants to Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) across the United States that will improve and increase sortation of polypropylene and support targeted consumer education efforts.

Polypropylene, sometimes referred to as No. 5 plastic, is used in an array of food and non-food packaging.
