The Recycling Partnership Announces First Grants to Improve Polypropylene Curbside Recycling for Millions of Americans

The Recycling Partnership today announced nearly $2 million in catalytic grants to advance polypropylene recycling in the U.S. through its Polypropylene Recycling Coalition, a cross-industry collaboration that launched just four months ago with founding steering committee members Keurig Dr Pepper, Braskem, and the Walmart Foundation and other members of the polypropylene value chain.

In its initial round of funding, The Recycling Partnership's Polypropylene Recycling Coalition is providing four grants to Materials Recovery Facilities across the United States that will improve and increase sortation of polypropylene and support targeted consumer education efforts. The Coalition's investments will widen total nationwide acceptance of polypropylene in curbside recycling programs by approximately 1.7% to an additional four million people, resulting in the recovery of a larger supply of polypropylene that could be made into new products such as consumer packaging and automotive parts.
