Dear Michael Ninkata,

Recycled Product Content Guides abound. A few are:

The Official Recycled Products Guide, by Recycling Data Mgmt. Corp, PO Box 577, Ogdensburg, NY 13669.

The US EPA has a list of sample vendors for each of the products included in its Comprehensive Procurement Guideline. There are several such lists, for e.g. Construction Products or Landscaping Products . These can be obatined from the RCRA Hotline.

The Recycled Product Directory of the Clean Washington Center is another possibility. I have the 5.95 edition. There may or may not be a later one.

The Recycling Sourcebook by Gale Research Co. has a list of directories of recycled products whicdh include many by the individual states and trade associations. The Plastics Council's one in particular is pretty good, as is the one of e.g. the States of MA, MN, IN.
