Customer Recycling Program

We created our customer Recycling Program to help our customers increase their sustainability efforts through an easily accessible, closed-loop recycling channel for post-industrial plastic.

Go green. Save green.

When our customers integrate their operations with our recycling program, they feel great about keeping plastic waste out of landfills.
