APR Adds Seven New Recycling Demand Champions

The Association of Plastic Recyclers (Washington, D.C.) announced seven new members of its Recycling Demand Champions campaign in June: Fraser Plastics (Maple Ridge, British Columbia), Fusion Packaging (Dallas), Intertape Polymer Group (Montreal), rPlanet Earth (Vernon, Calif.), Sabert (Sayreville, N.J.), Silgan Dispensing (Richmond, Va.), and Westfall Technik (Las Vegas).
The companies join 40 others who have committed to increase the amount of postconsumer resin they use in a current product or application or to develop a new product or application for postconsumer resin, APR says. Demand Champion efforts resulted in 25.9 million pounds of new postconsumer resin use in 2019, APR announced in an update on the program in May. Visit
