Just over 8 million lbs were collected in 2010, representing a 2.7% increase over the previous year. Most recycling occurred in California, with the collection of over 1.5 million lbs of containers. The other leading states were Texas, Washington, Mississippi and Arkansas, the ACRC notes. Of the 40 states in the programme, 25 reported increased collections and 15 decreases.
