National Postconsumer Plastic Bottle Recycling Rate Reports
The 2013 edition of the United States National Post-Consumer Plastics Bottle Recycling Report is the 24th annual report on plastic bottle recycling. This study is a cooperative effort between the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and the Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers (APR), the goal of which is to quantify the amount of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) bottles collected for recycling, as well as the rate of recycling of those bottles. This study includes postconsumer recycling values and comments for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) developed by the National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR) and the Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers (APR). The reclaimer survey portion of the study was conducted by the Moore Recycling Associates, Inc.
Postconsumer PET Container Recycling Activity Reports
2013 marks the nineteenth year that the National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR) has issued this report in its current format, and the ninth year that NAPCOR and The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) have worked together to produce it. This report would not be possible without the APR's support and the cooperation of its members. It is intended to provide the reader with a detailed overview of the recycling of injection stretch blow molded polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and jars in the United States during 2013, and a general summary of the recycling of PET thermoforms. Information contained in this report was obtained through surveys conducted by HDR, Inc. and Moore Recycling Associates, and from data generated internally by NAPCOR and L.O.M. Enterprises.
National Postconsumer Non-Bottle Rigid Plastic Recycling Reports
The 2013 National Postconsumer Recycling Report on Non-Bottle Rigid Plastics is the seventh annual report on U.S. pounds of postconsumer non-bottle rigid plastics—packaging and non-packaging—recovered for recycling. Research for this report was conducted by Moore Recycling Associates Inc. of Sonoma, California, for the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council.
Plastic Bags & Film Reports
The National Postconsumer Plastic Bag and Film Recycling Reports detail the amount of plastic bags and film recovered in the United States for recycling. Research for these reports was conducted by Moore Recycling Associates Inc. for the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council.
