Product Resource Guides for the Comprehensive Procurement Guideline (CPG) Program

EPA's Comprehensive Procurement Guideline (CPG) program helps agencies "close the loop" by buying recycled products. EPA published a series of product resource guides summarizing information on:

  • The CPG program;
  • EPA's recovered materials content recommendations;
  • Case studies from around the country, and;
  • Key resources, associations and websites.

There are nine resource guides, including one for each CPG product category.
