NERC adopts degradable additives policy

The Northeast Recycling Council, Inc. (NERC) has joined the national movement expressing concern about the use of degradable additives in plastic packaging by adopting a policy position in opposition to the use of these additives.

“The board determined that this practice currently has a negative impact on plastics recycling markets and the effectiveness of plastics recycling in general,” president of the board Sarah Kite reported.

The full policy is available in pdf format from the NERC Website.
