Recover Plastic Products—ACC

Enhance opportunities to recover plastic products for recycling and energy recovery.

  • ACC contributed $100,000 to help the Aquarium of the Pacific (Long Beach, CA) construct a permanent marine debris education exhibit aimed at reaching young people on the importance of recycling and proper disposal. In 2009, we also placed recycling bins outside the Aquarium. » view related video

  • Since the early 1990s, America’s plastics and recycling industries have invested over $2 billion in developing technologies and the infrastructure to recycle plastics in communities across the nation. These efforts are helping to divert valuable material from becoming litter and making it available for useful, second-generation products.
