Webinar: Labels and Plastics Recycling
May 7, 2018 (Milford, OH):

  • What is needed in a PS label to be compatible with recycling
  • The APR model specification for pressure sensitive labels
  • The Test Methods that support the model specification
  • The steps label converters can take to satisfy the specification criteria
  • Why Target and other retailers and brands are making commitments to recyclable packaging
  • How the Sustainable Packaging Coalition is tracking labels on products that are not compatible with recycling
