Are you doing something original or groundbreaking with plastics recycling? The American Chemistry Council wants to hear about it!

Each year, ACC’s Plastics Division hosts the Innovation in Plastics Recycling Awards, which highlight innovations in the plastics recycling industry by recognizing companies and individuals whose vision and perseverance bring new technologies, products, and initiatives to the marketplace.


The contest is open to all North American companies, individuals, and government bodies (including schools) that either (1) collect or process plastics for recycling; (2) manufacture equipment used to collect or process plastics for recycling; or (3) manufacture a new product made in whole or part from recycled plastic.
