RESOURCE RECYCLING TECHNOLOGIES TO RECYCLE KODAK FILM PACKAGING

 RESOURCE RECYCLING TECHNOLOGIES TO RECYCLE KODAK FILM PACKAGING
 BINGHAMTON, N.Y., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Resource Recycling Technologies, Inc. (AMEX: RRT), today announced that its plastics subsidiary, RRT Plastics Corp., has entered into an agreement with Eastman Kodak Company to provide exclusive recycling services on the eastern portion of the United States for the processing of Kodak consumer plastics and steel film packaging returned through Kodak's network of film processors.
 RRT is one of three processors nationwide being used by Kodak to provide photo processors with a reliable means to keep this packaging from being


landfilled or incinerated. RRT will process the material in its new state-of-the-art plastics cleaning, separating and compounding plant in Trenton, N.J. The project will begin on April 1, 1992. RRT expects to process at least one million pounds of material in the first full year of operation.
 Commenting on the development, Lawrence J. Schorr, president of RRT, stated: "We are honored to have been selected by Kodak for this project. They performed an exhaustive search and we needed to demonstrate not only our technical capabilities, but also our material marketing capability and our commitment to keeping this material from entering the waste stream. We hope to process more materials for Kodak and other manufacturers of plant and packaging waste which can be recovered through non-traditional collection systems."
 Resources Recycling Technologies is a vertically integrated organization dedicated to the advancement of recycling programs and technologies, and the development of new markets for secondary materials.
