This methodology provides procedures to estimate the additional plastic waste recycled through 1) mechanical recycling activities, including the installation of new recycling facilities, 2) capacity additions to or technology improvement of existing recycling facilities, and 3) incentivizing or facilitating an increase in the collection of plastic waste.

Recycling activities may include collection, sorting and/or mechanical recycling (i.e., production of recycled material) of plastic waste that otherwise would have been managed in a way that would not allow for a second life of the material.
