recyclable plastics

Running a business can yield lots of plastic scrap that you might not know what to do with. Many businesses will put their recyclable plastics in with the rest of the garbage, or simply keep them lying around to take up space. Recyclable plastics that go in the garbage will simply end up in a landfill and can no longer be repurposed. At Polypro Recycling, we can help your business turn your excess scrap into money while also helping the environment.

Types of Recyclable Plastics

There are a wide variety of recyclable plastics that Polypro will be willing to purchase and pick up from your place of business. Here are some of the types of plastic scrap we purchase from Florida businesses:

  • Baled water bottles
  • Bumper and auto parts
  • Totes, crates, and bins
  • Pipes and pallets
  • Shrink and stretch film
  • Strapping baled
