Recycled Plastic

Increasing Recycled Plastic Efforts

Plastic, plastic, plastic.  Recycled plastic, recycled PET to be exact.  Over the past 10 years, PET recycling efforts have greatly improved, not only reclamation but conversion of domestic and imported sourced rPET scrap.  While numbers are improving in terms of gross material pounds, more can be accomplished with improved sorting and processing techniques.  Even better news, PET thermoformed plastic recycling has increased by 70% over the last several years.  Let’s keep up the good work!  Universal Protective Packaging recycles approximately 99.9% of their scrap material.  For more details: NAPCOR 2014 Rate Report
