Dolco’s New Partnership for PS Recycling in Packaging and Consumer Goods

TAGS:  Green and Bioplastics    
Dolco Packaging announces a new collaboration with Agilyx Corporation to expand recycling of polystyrene (PS) packaging and other PS consumer goods.
Recycling 4 Mn Pounds of Post-industrial Scrap
The Wenatchee, Washington facility already recycles approximately 4 million pounds annually of post-industrial scrap and puts it back into its manufacturing process.
For many years, Dolco have also invited the local community to drop off used PS packaging. Now, Dolco is increasing its efforts by taking what it has collected from the community, as well as some of its industrial scrap, and giving it to Agilyx who will use its proprietary technology to recycle it into next generation PS.
The Wenatchee facility plans on supporting the initiative by increasing its community outreach efforts so that even more area consumers are aware of the collection point.
We are very excited to be working with Dolco to create new circular pathways for post-use PS. We value their commitment to increase plastic recovery and recycling. It is our mission to increase plastic recovery globally from 10% to 90% through new plastic collection programs with companies that see the value. Dolco has proven to be a true leader in post use plastic stewardship,” stated Joe Vaillancourt, CEO of Agilyx.
