Plastics Recycling Action Plan for Massachusetts — Part II
AbstractThis study assesses the feasibility of, and designs a plan for, including recovery of household plastic discards in the statewide multi-material recycling program of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Part I of the study, presented in J. Environmental Systems 18:3, pp. 213-264, 1988-89, discusses the types and amounts of plastic materials found in the waste stream, methods for collecting them, technologies for recycling them, and markets for the recycled products. Part II, appearing herein, concludes that plastics recycling should be pursued and describes an action plan for integrating the plastics component into the Commonwealth's recycling program. Part II also contains technical appendices.
