Poly-Recovery has developed a model for local recycling- from waste pick up to new product manufacturing.
The company’s three goals are to eliminate landfill dumping, reducing carbon waste, and sustaining both the environment and local economy.
This talk will be given by owner of Poly-Recovery, John Pelech, about his work with his 100 mile model. Facilitated by Jon Wylie
Poly-Recovery is an amazing example of how business can thrive while being sustainable!
What is Poly-Recovery?
Poly-Recovery has revolutionized the recycling industry. This company does not work exclusively on one particular area, like paper or plastic, but on multiple sections of the recycling industry. Located in Portsmouth, NH, the company has made a promise to maintain operations within a 100-mile radius. Recyclables will be bought and resold within this 100 mile area. Poly-Recovery buys and sells paper related products, plastics resin, and much more. For example the company sells resin to a flower pot making company in Massachusetts and sells polyester fiber 11.8 miles down the road to be used in the production of car trunk liner and brand-name performance wear.
