Extending Product Value
Quincy Recycle strives to be an ongoing, innovative recycling solutions company. To do this, we are continuously adapting to the needs of consumers and the economy. Reverse logistics rely on consumers to start the recycling process and essentially reverse the cycle of product distribution. Reverse logistics are important for continuing the life cycle of products and contributing to a circular economy.
As part of our waste stream management plans, we work with companies to identify creative recycling opportunities. We embrace the idea of reverse logistics and encourage manufacturers, warehouses, and industrial suppliers to explore recycling opportunities even after products have been delivered to consumers. Reverse logistics refers to the process of moving products from consumers back into the supply chain. This can provide businesses with production cost savings, increased customer loyalty, and additional revenue.
Reverse logistics aren’t possible for some companies due to a variety of reasons. However, our team will analyze your waste streams and determine the most effective course of action for your materials. Quincy Recycle is committed to keeping our communities green while partnering with businesses to responsibly recycle and improve their bottom line.
Examples of Reverse Logistics
Customers decide they no longer want the product and return it to the retailer. The product is inspected and separated into a category, such as: resell as new, resell as returned, repair, refurbish, remanufacture, recycle, or dispose.
Consumers are encouraged to return products, like plastic and glass bottles, to company drop off bins or locations. These bottles are then recycled or reused to contain the same product as before.
Some products are offered to consumers in a rental or lease agreement. When that agreement is over, the product is returned to the business that owns it. That business can then choose to rent the product out again, reassign it, or recycle it.
End of Life
Products that were used and are now damaged or expired can be donated back to the manufacturer and recycled to create new products.
