PET Recycling Coalition Formed to Improve Plastic Packaging Circularity

The Recycling Partnership has launched the PET Recycling Coalition, an initiative informed by industry knowledge and expertise to improve polyethylene terephthalate (PET, plastic #1) circularity. Its work will focus on four key opportunities to increase PET recycling:

  • Increasing the capture of PET bottles;
  • Broadening the acceptance of PET trays, cups, and clamshells in community recycling collection programs;
  • Unlocking new supplies of recycled PET (rPET) for packaging manufacturers;
  • Strengthening recycling systems for pigmented and opaque PET.
