Laird Recognizes Environmental Recycling Stewardship

Laird Plastics recently recognized 114 companies for their demonstrated environmental stewardship through their recycling partnership with Laird. Landfills have been spared thousands of tons of plastics with the help of Laird Plastics recycling program. Brett Thompson, Manager of Laird Plastics Recycling and Environmental Business Unit, stated, “We feel our position in the supply chain makes us uniquely suited to effectively close the plastics recycling loop. We would like to thank those customers that have helped us develop a robust domestic recycling network.”

Laird Plastics created their North American Recycling and Environmental Business Unit in 2009, with a charter to drive plastic pounds back into domestic manufacturing, and reduce the volume of plastics that find their way to North American landfills. The program includes the recycling of acrylic, polycarbonate, polypropylene, polyethylene, ABS, PETG, HIPS and other plastic materials. According to Thompson, the environmental arena is constantly evolving, and that Laird Plastics will continue to add value through sustainability.
