Recycle with us.

We created our customer Recycling Program to help you increase your sustainability efforts through an easily accessible, viable recycling channel for your post-industrial plastic.

Go green. Save green.

When you integrate your operations with our recycling program, you’ll feel great about keeping plastic waste out of landfills. But did you know that recycling can also help your business save money? Reduce waste disposal fees, free up warehouse space, and maybe even get reimbursed for your materials when you partner with us in your sustainability efforts!
