There's still time to register the Association of Plastic Recyclers next webinar, but not much.
The trade group has scheduled a free session titled “APR Sorting Potential Protocols: Identifying Packages that Get Lost in the Recycling Process” for 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 17.
“The APR Sorting Potential Protocols are designed to identify specific features that may cause an entire package to be lost in the recycling process. This knowledge enables design engineers to focus their improvement efforts as they design with recyclability in mind,” APR states.
The protocols complement the information from APR's Design for Plastics Recyclability. The information will cover the ability to reduce contamination in the waste stream, and increase the volume material that is properly sorted and available to plastics recyclers, the group said.
Presenters will be Curt Cozart, president of Common Sense Solutions, and Kara Pochiro, APR communications director.
