Amcor, P&G, APR honored for plastics recycling

A trade group and two companies are being recognized by the Plastics division of the American Chemistry Council for their work when it comes to plastics recycling.

The Innovation in Plastics Recycling Awards for 2017 are going to Amcor, the Association of Plastic Recyclers and Procter & Gamble, the ACC said.  The winners were announced on Nov. 15, America Recycles Day.

Amcor, the packaging giant, is being recognized for creation of a mono-material plastic pouch that contains 20 percent post-consumer recycled content.

“Amcor notes that the pouch itself can be recycled along with other mono-material plastic bags and product overwraps at drop-off locations across the U.S. The pouch features the How2Recycle label, which educates consumers about how to recycle various packaging materials, including plastics. The latest company to use Amcor’s innovative pouch is Method,” according to ACC.
