Recycling Acronym of the Day

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

OMG look at all the RAP! 

Every industry has its acronyms, and the waste industry is no exception – in fact, it seems to be a real leader.  All those extra syllables are wasteful, you know.  Convey information quickly and get right to the point with a few of my favorites:

OMG – old magazines
RMP – Residential Mixed Paper
RAS – Recycled Asphalt Shingles
RAP – Recycled Asphalt Pavement
ONP – Old NewsPaper
BMW – Biodegradable Municipal Waste
WTE – Waste to Energy

GAF, itself an acronym that at one time stood for General Aniline and Films, is helping to lead the discussion in RAS, so I think that’s the best acronym on the list.  Choose yours here!
