What is Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Plastics?
Post-consumer recyclable plastics are often referred to as the acronym of PCR, which is material that is made from recycled products from consumers. These recycled items may vary from aluminum, paper, cardboard, and plastic bottles. These materials are usually put into production by local recycling programs and shipped to larger recycling facilities to be sorted categorically by material. These products are usually purchased in batches and then grounded (or melted) into small pellets and molded into new items. Once finished, the new PCR-made material can then be used in a variety of cases such as packaging for products.
