[Re] Waste is here to change the way companies handle their plastic waste and reduce how much plastic ends up in landfills and our environment. They do more than just recycle and reduce waste, they redirect plastic waste from landfills and create new, usable products from recycled plastic flakes!
In 2022 alone, [Re] Waste diverted over 160,000 lbs of waste from landfills. This included 10,000 lbs of cannabis packaging, equivalent to 165,000 containers, which otherwise would have gone to the landfill. The remaining amount of material diverted from the landfill was from businesses that were unable to participate in traditional recycling programs because there was no commodity market for their plastics.
This diversion from landfills helps to reduce the amount of waste in the environment and mitigates the effects of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions generated from the decomposition of organic waste in landfills. By processing these materials, [Re] Waste is playing a crucial role in promoting a circular economy, where resources are kept in use for as long as possible, and waste is reduced, reused, and recycled.
