The New York City's (NYC) Mayor office has announced that the residential recycling system is now accepting all rigid plastics - including toys, hangers, shampoo bottles, coffee cups and food containers - due to the capacity at the new SIMS municipal recycling facility in the city.
The global rigid plastics packaging market will reach a value of $161.11 billion this year, according to a report by visiongain. A number of favourable consumer trends, along with developing markets, will drive this growth.
The recycling of rigid plastics, excluding bottles, climbed 13 per cent in 2011 to reach at least 934 million pounds (423,650 tonnes) for the year, and US consumers with local access to recycle non-bottle rigid plastics shot from 40 per cent to 57 per cent between 2011 and 2012, according to a pair of reports released today at the Plastics Recycling Conference in New Orleans, USA.
