What Really Goes in that Bale? An Overview of the 2015 National Mixed Rigid Bale Composition Study Presented August 11, 2015

The 2015 National Mixed Rigid Bale Composition Study was conducted to categorize the composition of the various types of mixed rigid plastic bales generated in North America, in addition to providing an estimate of the volume and type of non-bottle rigid plastic available for recycling. Making more accurate estimates of the types, volume and destination of rigid plastics currently recycled, and understanding the type and tonnage of rigid plastic available in North America, will strengthen and advance non-bottle rigid recycling. This webinar will provide an executive summary of the full study and report.
