New Plastics Recycling Website for Recycling Professionals

Numerous organizations dedicated to increasing plastics recycling have launched a new website (www.RecycleYourPlastics.org) to aggregate the extensive but often far-flung information on plastics recycling that exists on the Internet. The site is designed to offer an easy-to-use gateway for information on plastics recycling, in an effort to help enable expanded collection and recycling of plastics across the United States.
 
RecycleYourPlastics.org is designed primarily for community recycling coordinators, solid waste officials and other professionals tasked with helping communities collect and recycle their plastics. The site organizes existing resources on plastics recycling into various searchable categories—consumer education programs, sortation technologies, containers, bags and film and more—so recycling professionals can readily find information on topics of interest.

RecycleYourPlastics.org gathers information on plastic bottles, rigid containers, film, foodservice and other plastics into “an easy-to-use resource on plastics recycling for recycling professionals, including user-friendly tips and tools, best practices, ready access to experts and peers in the recycling world and more.”
 
“We have consistently heard from recycling professionals that finding information on plastics recycling can be a challenge,” said Steve Russell, Vice President, plastics division, for the American Chemistry Council, which spearheaded the effort. “RecycleYourPlastics.org should make it easier to find useful information that contributes to recycling plastics.”
 
“Simply put, RecycleYourPlastics.org is designed to enable recycling professionals to recycle more plastics,” Russell continued. “We want the site to grow continuously with significant input from recycling professionals and others interested in increasing plastics recycling.”
 
The site was developed with input from a broad range of organizations and companies—from recyclers to retailers to plastics producers—interested in increasing the types and rates of plastics recycling. These groups encourage recycling professionals to contribute to the site by providing case studies, success stories, news and other information.
 
The site also includes numerous ways for recycling professionals to connect with their peers, including Twitter, LinkedIn, news feeds, “ask an expert” and more.
