The study focuses on the generation and recovery of post-consumer plastic packaging manufactured from six common plastic resins. The study includes information on current recycling rates; economic, regulatory and technological trends; and collection and processing costs. It also projects recovery rates by resin type by utilizing assumptions for voluntary and regulatory changes in current Oregon plastics recovery programs. The study will be used by the ORDEQ to develop recommendations on effective recycling rates for plastic resins for the years 1992 to 2000.
