A Plastic Lifecycle:
Our custom solutions look a little bit different for each client. Here's an example of how we can reduce the costs and help save the planet at the same time.
A Seed Manufacturer with bulk quantities of scrap plastic bags partners with Quincy Recycle to divert these items from landfill.
Quincy Recycle collects the plastic bags from the Seed Manufacturer as a part of a mixed-commodity trailer, paying fair market value for the plastic scrap material.
Quincy Recycle sorts and organizes the plastic bags at their facility.
Quincy Recycle hauls the organized plastic bags to a Plastic Processing Company.
The Plastic Processing Company washes, shreds, and grinds the bags to make plastic pellets.
The pellets are sold to a Plastic Lumber Decking Manufacturer where they are used to make high quality plastic decking.
