Save Green by Going Green with Cope!
Cope Plastics, Inc. has been recycling for over 20 years, but since establishing their solar-powered processing center in 2012, they are now making an extraordinary ecological impact. Their facility located on Humbert Road in Alton has recycled millions of pounds of post-industrial plastic scrap and created new local jobs. Cope actually recycles 90% of the materials used in their business process, equating to 262,000 pounds of paper, metal, oil, cardboard, and electronics annually. Recognizing an unmet need in the industry, Cope has extended their recycling services to their customers across the Midwest, collecting over 1.14 million lbs. in 2014, 1.56 million lbs. in 2015, and 2.5 millions lbs. in 2016, and 2.68 millions lbs. in 2017. Their initiatives have been recognized by many local organizations and the International Association of Plastics Distribution (IAPD), who have awarded them accolades four years running. They regularly host community-wide recycling events with a focus on electronics collection and have become an industry leader, driving suppliers and competitors across the globe to ‘go green.’ As their environmental statement affirms, Cope Plastics is committed to making the world a better place.
