Plastics Recovery & Recycling Waste Management

Industrial materials recycling offers your company multiple benefits. Recycling helps reduce or even eliminate waste disposal costs and even provide you with an additional income stream. It helps reduce your company's environmental footprint and it can strengthen your relationships with local governments and community leaders.

There are many industrial materials you can target for recycling, including plastic. Over the past few decades, new technologies have been developed that allow the recycling of industrial and consumer plastics into new, remarketable products. Today, manufacturers use recycled plastic to make everything from paints, beverage bottles, sports uniforms and bridges. There's a growing, eager worldwide market for industrial plastic materials, which ensures you'll have buyers for the plastic byproducts your facility produces.

Plastic recycling should be part of your company's environmental sustainability program.
