The Pennsylvania Recycling Markets Center (RMC) unveiled their exhibit, Recycling Works!, at The State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg. Also taking part was Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful (KPB) and the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association (PWIA).

The exhibit, which will be on display at the museum through early January 2014, showcases Pennsylvania’s economic development achievements through recycling. “Recycling is a key component of environmental protection,” said acting DEP secretary Chris Abruzzo, who also participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Recycling Works! exhibit displays Pennsylvania-manufactured recycled-content products; provides the history of recycled content product manufacturing and grassroots recycling in Pennsylvania; and showcases the advancements in recycling technology, including single-stream recycling.

The exhibit will be on display in Harrisburg and is included with a paid admission to the State Museum.

It is anticipated that the exhibit will make stops at additional museums across the Commonwealth during 2014.
