Plastics News: Oregon Project Out to Prove Recycling Can Pay

The Woodlands, Texas – September 26, 2019 –  Plastics News published an article showcasing a major Oregon-based recycling project, sponsored by AmSty, whose goal is to find solutions to plastic waste and recycling improvements.

Jim Johnson, the author of the article says, "Instead of adding additional equipment to each Municipal Recycling Facility (MRF) to capture more plastics, the pilot project instead is out to prove that a secondary sortation at a completely different facility is cost effective."

AmSty, together with industry partners, sponsored the 60-day recycling demonstration project managed by the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) known as the Pacific Northwest Secondary Sorting Demonstration Project.  The exercise involves installing a portable secondary sorting system where selected materials from four regional materials recovery facilities (MRFs) will be further sorted.
