The Association of Plastic Recyclers is bullish on the plastic recycling industry.
And it has a webinar to prove it.
APR has scheduled the webinar for 1 p.m. Aug. 9, that will feature APR Technical Director John Standish along with Dylan de Thomas, editorial director of Resource Recycling.
The webinar, called “Plastics Recycling Works: Facts and Figures to Support a Thriving Industry,” will provide “an overview of the environmental benefits of recycling, market trends, brand owner sustainability goals, as well as future areas of growth in the plastics recycling industry,” APR said.
Webinar registration is available at APR's website.
The trade group also announced plans for a second annual Plastics Recycling Showcase, which will highlight and promote innovations that impact plastics collection and recycling.
The showcase is open to APR member companies and will focus on “recently commercialized innovations,” the trade group said.
“This program is part of APR's Champions for Change Program which was created to encourage innovators to address technical challenges facing plastic recyclers,” Standish said in a statement. “We recognize that innovation drives the growth of recycling, and is essential to the success of the plastics recycling industry.”
