Encorp Atlantic’s plastic bag recycling program was launched during 2019 National Environment Week (June 2 – 8), the intent of the program being to collect and recycle all types of plastic bags received at RCs from customers. At this point, 45 RCs are participating in the program. On average, we pick up more than 85 full bulk bags filled with plastic bags every week. The plastic bag recycling program offers significant cost savings for RC operators. But most of all, the program is an added service for customers seeking solutions for their recycling needs.
We must remind RCs to be vigilant when putting plastic bags in Encorp bulk bags. Make sure the plastic bags are emptied first, to avoid contamination!
