Approaching Goal of Recycling 100% of ECO--Poster Sheets Immediately Upon Completion of Campaigns

Building upon its momentum in converting nearly all of it poster inventory to accommodate single sheet ECO--Posters, Clear Channel Outdoor is now also greatly reducing landfill waste by recycling nearly 100% of ECO--Poster materials upon completion of campaigns.

ECO--Posters are created with polyethylene, the most commonly-recycled plastic in the world. With a visual quality is comparable to vinyl executions, ECO--Posters maintain their visible integrity longer, 90 days as opposed to 30 days with the previous posters.

"We are dedicated to going green, and have made significant strides in addressing the environmental concerns of our clients and the communities in which we do business," said Paul Meyer, President and CEO, Clear Channel Outdoor Americas. "Since May of this year, Clear Channel Outdoor has recycled over 260,000 pounds of ECO--Poster material and anticipates that over 400,000 pounds will be recycled by year's end."

Clear Channel Outdoor currently has a contract with Avangard Innovative to recycle its ECO--Posters into a variety of products including railroad ties. In addition to poster inventory, the company is currently working toward converting its entire bulletin inventory to accommodate recyclable ECO--Flex material and will be recycling them in the same fashion as its ECO--Poster program.
