Plastics Recycling 2013: Recycling playtime
What's the best way to recycle plastic toys? Funded by the American Chemistry Council, this brand-new research from 4R Sustainability explores the technical feasibility of recycling plastics from toys. This study aims to understand what existing municipal collection and recovery schemes could do to facilitate the recovery of toys for recycling. Would toys be a good fit for inclusion in bulky rigids recycling programs? At what point should plastic toys with electronic components be diverted to electronics recyclers? What makes some toys more recyclable than others? What opportunities exist for recovering oil from plastic toys? Get the answers to these important questions and more from this fascinating new study.
Don't be left behind — get your facts straight from the source at the 2013 Plastics Recycling Conference, which will be held March 19-20 in New Orleans. For more information, visit www.plasticsrecycling.com.
And, after the conference, stick around for the Global Plastics Environmental Conference's (GPEC) "The Latest Need to Know: From Recycling to Sustainability of Plastics." GPEC's conference will be held right after the Plastics Recycling Conference, March 20-22 at the same great location, the Sheraton New Orleans, right next to the Crescent City's famed French Quarter. Don't miss out on these two terrific events.
