Plastic-News-Recycling-Today-Association-Plastic-Recyclers-(APR)-buys-Resource-Recycling-Inc Washington, D.C. — Resource Recycling, Inc., which produces a number of recycling trade publications and conferences, has been acquired by the Association of Plastic Recyclers.

APR, headquartered in Washington, D.C., closed on the sale of Resource Recycling on March 1. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Resource Recycling, based in Portland, Ore., is the publisher of Plastics Recycling Update and puts on the annual Plastics Recycling Conference and Trade Show, which is the world’s largest plastics recycling event. That conference attracted 2,000 attendees in 2018. The 2019 show, which will be the 14th iteration, is taking place next week outside Washington, D.C.

Resource Recycling also publishes Resource Recycling magazine, geared toward the municipal recycling sector, and E-Scrap News, a trade journal for the electronics recycling business. In addition, it produces the Resource Recycling Conference and Trade Show and the E-Scrap Conference and Trade Show.

Steve Alexander, the president and CEO of APR, said the group intends to retain all Resource Recycling staff and to continue to produce all six products in the Resource Recycling portfolio. He noted the plastics magazine and conference have clear ties to APR’s mission, and he said the other products carry value to APR both as revenue generators and as conduits to the wider recycling industry.

“APR’s goal is to grow recycling, and having a widely respected publishing and conference management arm helps accomplish this important purpose,” Alexander said. “The distribution of well-researched recycling information greatly benefits APR members.”
