Sustainability Innovations

Impact of liner recycling

Working with our recycling partners, we domestically shred, grind and wash LLDPE liners, reclaiming the LLDPE resin in a 100% environmentally friendly process.

Staying cost competitive, we make it an economical decision for our customers to keep plastic (which takes 1000 years to biodegrade) out of landfills. We are educators and advocates in this space and our goal is to recycle all applicable C-ring liners Canada-wide.
