Signs made from recovered materials are used for public roads and highways, as well as inside and outside of office buildings, museums, parks and other public places. EPA's designation pertains to plastic signs used for nonroad applications (e.g. building signs, trail signs) and to aluminum roadway and nonroadway signs. The designation also covers any associated plastic or steel supports.
