According to the EPA, 6.8% of plastic waste was recycled in 2018.
A New Perspective
COMPAX CARES, our philanthropic arm has funded the launch of a new recycling education organization in SLC. Through community outreach and partnerships, REDO (Recycling Education Development Organization) is already reducing contamination in local recycling streams.
Reducing contamination from our recycling stream reduces the cost of sustainability. Our grassroots effort is already making a difference in our community.
Sustainable Packaging Options
Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) resins, bio resins, sustainable/bio-degradable additives, paper and glass alternatives. These trends aren’t going anywhere.
Closed-Loop PCR Resin
COMPAX uses 100% of scrap material and currently regrinds plastics in our Salt Lake City manufacturing facility. Our goal is to produce PCR resin at a lower cost by 2024.
