Recycling plastic saves energy, valuable resources and helps to protect our environment!
What is PET
PET is used as a raw material for making packaging materials such as bottles and containers for packaging a wide range of food products and other consumer goods. Examples include soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, detergents, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products and edible oils. PET is one of the most common consumer plastics used.Polyethylene terephthalate can also be used as the main material in making water-resistant paper.
We help our customers turn their waste paper into recyclable material, so it doesn’t end up in landfill which naturally is better for the environment.

We believe in recycling plastics, giving them another life through use and reuse – it’s a safe option that saves landfill space, energy and resources. Our Company facility reclaims (purchases bales of plastic PET diverting them from landfills) post-consumer bottles and thermometers with the #1 SPI resin identification code, the graphic you see on your containers with the chasing arrows and the #1 inside. After we receive the bales, we wash, grind and extrude the material into a roll of plastic that can be used to thermoform new plastic packaging. It takes energy and petroleum-based resources to create virgin PET, so in order to reduce our carbon footprint, save valuable natural resources, diminish landfill waste and the incineration of plastic – we choose to recycle.
