C is for… Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (CPG)

The Environmental Protection Agency’s CPG Program promotes the use of recovered materials.

Purchasing agents are required to buy products with the highest practicable recovered-material content. The CPG publishes recommended recycled-content levels in a Recovered Materials Advisory Notice (RMAN).

There are over 60 products designated in eight categories, including products in Construction & Landscaping; Office & Paper supplies; Park & Recreation products; Vehicular products and more.
