The chasing arrows recycling symbol is a voluntary symbol developed in
1988 by the Society of the Plastics Industry.  Even though it was
developed on a voluntary basis, it has been adopted as a legislative
requirement in 39 states.  For more information on placement
and sizing of the symbol, contact SPI directly.  Phone is 202-371-5200,
