Expanding Opportunities in Film Collection August 19, 2014
More than half of the film collected for recycling in the U.S. was exported in 2012. With the implementation of tighter restrictions on the import of scrap plastic into China, domestic markets want to let recyclers know that strong demand remains—provided the quality is good. The key is to know your plastic film markets and to collect for value. Learn about the depth in demand for scrap plastic film and the tools available on plasticfilmrecycling.org to support the collection of high quality material. Speakers include Nina Bellucci Butler, Moore Recycling Associates; Dave Heglas, Trex; and Jim Feeney, Wisconsin Film & Bag.
This webinar is part of the APR educational series, with cooperation from the FFRG, which works to increase the collection and processing of flexible film.
