Recycling Grocery Rigid Plastics Webinar

Tue, Sep 23, 2014 - Tue, Sep 23, 2014

1:00 - 2:15 EDT

The Association of Post-consumer Plastics Recyclers (APR) and the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) are pleased to announce an upcoming webinar on Sept. 23, 2014 focused on recycling of rigid plastics from the grocery sector.

North American grocery stores have a great record of recycling cardboard and plastic film. To further expand sustainability efforts, reduce carbon footprint, and decrease waste disposal costs, some grocery chains have implemented an additional program - rigid plastics recycling. Buckets, pails and containers found behind the counters of the deli, seafood, bakery and pharmacy departments are a high volume disposal item with strong recycling market value. Attend this webinar to learn how a major US grocery chain is successfully recovering their grocery rigids, hear from the plastic recycling marketplace on rigid plastics value, and learn what resources are available in Canada and the US to help you implement programs.

Guest Speakers:

  • Liz Bedard, APR;
  • Ted Brown, Brown Sustainability Solutions;
  • Kim Brunson, Publix;
  • Keith Bechard, Entropex; and
  • Krista Friesen, CPIA
