State Recycling

APR strives to increase public awareness about plastics recycling.  In creating a comprehensive list of state recycling resources, we hope to increase participation in collection projects and to positively impact the efficiency of plastics reclamation.  We aim to reach the general public, state and local solid waste management officials, legislators, and other key audiences who all make an impact on plastics recycling programs. 

The links below contain helpful recycling information and documents specific to each state where applicable.
