Both fully formed plastic products and plastic byproducts can be bought and sold for industrial and commercial uses. From scrap plastic bales to post-consumer resin, plastics of all types can be reused, recycled or repurposed.
Why Buy or Recycle Plastics?
Plastics were developed to last a long time and not decompose. Fortunately, that means we can easily reuse and recycle plastic materials. Many plastic products can be refurbished, reused, resold or salvaged. Plastic byproducts, such as scrap bales, resin and microplastics, can also be reused through material recovery and recycling efforts.
Durability, performance and lightweight qualities make nearly all plastic varieties affordable and worthwhile to buy used and repurpose. Buying and selling plastic products and byproducts also helps fulfill many organization’s sustainability goals and contributes to creating a circular economy.
