Plastipak Joins APR Campaign Aimed at Increasing Demand for Recycled Plastics

The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) established a campaign to increase demand for recycled plastics in North America. The campaign aims to increase the use of polyolefin (PP or PE) post-consumer resin (PCR) by focusing on “Work in Process” (WIP) items used in manufacturing, such as trash cans, pallets, tote boxes and recycling bins.

Plastipak and its recycling affiliate, Clean Tech, joined the campaign as initial Demand Champions for the campaign. As participants, the companies commit to using WIP items containing PCR in their facilities.
