New Standardized Recycling Labels Implemented

Making sense of recycling

The How2Recycle Label is a voluntary, standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public. Variation in recycling programs, unclear labeling, and inaccurate recyclability claims make proper recycling a challenge. The How2Recycle Label was created to provide consistent and transparent on-package recycling information to consumers. Currently the label only applies to packaging sold in the U.S., with a few select plastic film and paper labels available for packaging sold in Canada.
