Foundation Partners on Development of Annual Rate Report
The Foundation for Plastic Recycling is pleased to be partnering with the APR to develop the annual National Postconsumer Plastic Bottle Recycling Rate Report. The goal of the comprehensive study and subsequent Rate Report 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.
