APR's New Tool for MRFs: Sort for Value Matrix April 23, 2014

China's Operation Green Fence policy sent many MRF operators searching for alternative markets for mixed plastic bales. Fortunately, many found domestic plastic reclaimers interested in purchasing non-bottle rigid plastic material. Although specific sorting by the MRF may be necessary to access some domestic markets, the additional sorting may well result in additional revenue. The APR Rigids Program, in cooperation with Moore Recycling, has developed a graphic tool called the "Sort for Value Matrix" that illustrates the economic value of sorting recyclable rigid plastics. This webinar will review the methodology used in developing the matrix as well as provide an explanation on how MRFs can use the matrix to better understand the potential value of their rigid plastic stream.
