On America Recycles Day, Plastics Makers Say: Let’s Recycle More Types Of Plastics

To celebrate America Recycles Day on November 15—and to encourage Americans to recycle more plastics year round—Plastics Make it Possible® is offering some tips to widen the types of plastics collected for recycling, as well as a chance to win an iPad Air.

Recycling plastic beverage bottles from American kitchens has become commonplace, but many other types of plastics also can be recycled, beyond the kitchen and even beyond the home. Plastics Make it Possible® urges Americans to recycle plastics used throughout the home, from the bathroom to the outdoors, as well as plastics used away from home.

“Plastics recycling is increasing year after year, which is great news for the environment,” said Steve Russell, vice president of plastics at the American Chemistry Council, which sponsors the Plastics Make it Possible® initiative. “We can achieve even greater gains in recycling rates by recycling more types of plastics that we use everyday.”

To encourage more recycling, visitors to plasticsmakeitpossible.com/second-chances can learn more about the widening opportunities to recycle plastics, as well as enter for a chance to win a 16GB iPad Air (no purchase necessary) preloaded with applications, tips, and information about plastics and recycling. The sweepstakes will run from November 8, 2015 to November 22, 2015 to focus attention on America Recycles Day, the only nationally recognized day devoted to encouraging Americans to recycle, sponsored by Keep America Beautiful (KAB).
