U.S. Polymer’s program recycles stretch plastic scrap into cash

U.S. Polymers, Inc. launched a unique program called Green/Redeem™, The new program recycles stretch plastic scrap commonly used to wrap pallet-sized merchandise ranging from packaged food products to bottled beverages.

According to Randy Haight, U.S. Polymers’ president, “Many large bakeries, supermarkets, major retail and logistics operations use tens of thousands of pounds of clear stretch plastic to wrap goods on pallets for easier stocking and handling. Our unique program picks up this waste material for recycling, turning the scrap plastic into the most sought-after commodity in business today, namely cash.”
