The Supply and Demand of Recycled Plastic


"There is more demand for recycled plastic than there is supply.  People putting it in the recycling bin, that's the challenge we face," said Keith Christman of the American Chemistry Council.  The cost of virgin, non-recycled plastic is much higher than that of recycled plastic, so more and more companies want to use recycled materials in their products.
