  1. New Developments in Plastic RecyclingPresented to: CRRA Conference Burlingame, CA August 4, 2008

  2. Trends in Plastic Recycling Recycling Options Developing Markets Challenges Manufacturing Process Recycling Plastic Programs Overview

  3. Trends in Plastic Recycling • Market increase • Petroleum increase  plastic cost increase • More use of recycled plastic material • Transportation cost increases • Growth of local markets • Maximizing material volumes • Grants • DOC Market Development Grants $20M/year

  4. Recycling Options • Strong Markets • PET • HDPE • LDPE and HDPE Film • Expanding Markets • 3-7 Mixed Plastics • PP (#5) • PS (#6) • PVC (#3) • Other (#7)

  5. Poly Propylene – PP #5 • PET bottle caps • Nursery pots • Blue-wrap (Hospitals) • DVD covers

  6. Poly Styrene – PS #6 • Hangers • Nursery flats • Other

  7. Poly Carbonate – Other #7 • CDs & DVDs • Water bottles • Meter covers

  8. Computer Plastics – Other #7 • ABS – Gray Monitor Covers • HIPS – Black Monitor & TV Covers

  9. Manufacturing Process • Film  pellets/plastic lumber/trash liners • Nursery pots  nursery pots • PET  Plastic containers (strawberry baskets) • Carts  pellets • ABS/HIPS  pellets • HDPE  lumber, pallets, railroad ties, other

  10. Recycling Plastic Programs • Volume • Small generators • Large generators • Collection methods • Carts, FEL, debris boxes • Transportation • Clean source separated material

  11. Plastics Plastics Plastics • Plastics – the missing piece in many recycling programs • Plastics – a complex commodity to understand and handle, but opportunities exist • Plastics – strong markets for large clean volumes
