Abstract: NAPCOR's mission is to facilitate PET plastic recycling and promote the usage of PET packaging. The number of new PET plastic containers on the market is increasing every year and so is the number of communities across America that are recycling PET bottles in local collection programs. NAPCOR helps communities recycle PET by providing technical and communications assistance, including: Assistance with the set-up of PET collection programs, including the traditional curbside and drop-off programs as well as alternative collection programs, educational materials and collection tools, market facilitation and market research, local initiatives to promote PET recycling with public awareness,and promoting awareness of products made with recycled PET plastic.
A number of resources are available at no cost through their tools section. They also sell the PETE's Pack, which helps tell the PET plastic recycling story and includes sample recycled PET materials for a "hands-on" learning experience. ($39.95 July 2004)
