I can say that because Philadelphia curbside recycling programs don't accept
any plastic (it was cut out of the original program) that it's not too
profitable in that area...Although the original reason i believe was due to
trucks filling up and expanding recycling city-wide...either way they'd
accept plastic if it were profitable.
PA DEP Recycling Hotline (1-800-346-4242) can sometimes help locate markets
for materials within the state. While the information is more limited to
Pennsylvania...I'm sure they'd be willing to give anyone information about
recycling markets available in the state.
