Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (CPG) Program

Under the Comprehensive Procurement Guideline (CPG) program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designates products that are or can be made with recovered materials, and recommends practices for buying these products.  Once a product is designated, procuring federal agencies are required to purchase it with the highest recovered material content level practicable.  Buying recycled content products helps to ensure that the materials collected in home and office recycling programs will be used again in the manufacturing of new products.
