Alberta Plastics Recycling Association

  • Waste Reduction Associations


The Alberta Plastics Recycling Association (APRA) is in its 32nd year as a not-for-profit association dedicated to the goals to advance plastic circularity and progress Alberta as a sustainable place to do business. APRA is a conduit of information in the diversion of plastics from landfill and makes introductions among stakeholders to build important relationships. Its membership consists of plastics resin producers, manufacturers, fabricators, converters, wholesalers and retailers of plastic products, along with plastics recyclers and other members of the recycling community. The organization has helped to establish plastics recycling initiatives in Alberta for materials including used oil containers, milk containers and expanded polystyrene (EPS) among others. The Association is committed to the establishment of an agricultural plastics program and increased capture of plastics materials without a designated recycling program.
