Purchasing new products made from recycled materials helps close the recycling loop. There are thousands of products that contain recycled content. When you go shopping, look for:
  • Products that can be easily recycled, and
  • Products that contain recycled content.
Here are some of the terms used:
  • Recycled-content product. This means the product was manufactured with recycled materials, either collected from a recycling program or from waste recovered during the normal manufacturing process. Sometimes labels tell how much of the content was from recycled materials.
  • Postconsumer content. This is very similar to recycled content, but the material comes only from recyclables collected from consumers or businesses through a recycling program.
  • Recyclable product. These are products that can be collected, processed and manufactured into new products after they have been used. These products do not necessarily contain recycled materials. Remember not all kinds of recyclables may be collected in your community so be sure to check with your local recycling program before you buy.
