Plastic Bag Recycling Efforts Lauded

NEW YORK, NY

The Progressive Bag Affiliates of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) is applauding the efforts of Penn Jersey Paper Co. and Poly-Pak Industries, both of which recently launched programs that provide end-to-end recycling infrastructure to facilitate plastic bag recycling.

Steve Russell, managing director of ACC's Plastics Div., says, “The private sector recognizes the opportunity that plastic bag recycling offers both as a product offering and through the sale of recycled plastic in the secondary market. The markets for these materials clearly show that plastics are too valuable a resource to waste and should be recycled. We encourage more of this.”

He adds, “The innovative programs developed by Penn Jersey and PolyPak are two examples of how the entrepreneurial spirit is generating creative, environmentally responsible solutions in the marketplace.”
