BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Spurred by an ample supply of ABS resin from IBM's computer recycling center, Plastic Manufacturing and Recycling Systems Inc. has opened a recycling operation in Binghamton. Ron LaBuz, president of the 18-month-old firm, said the 75,000-square-foot facility will recycle post-industrial and engineering-grade plastic im-mediately, with plans to accept post-consumer commodity grades and establish a wash line later.
``Broome County is interested in doing a film collection campaign, which we will be a part of,'' LaBuz said.
``We hope to have a high density polyethylene wash line and grinding capabilities by May or June,'' he said.
The firm plans to recycle glass and crumb rubber, and set up extrusion and manufacturing of a finished product.
PMRS started as a small grinding system and consultancy in a 15,000-square-foot facility in Utica, N.Y., but moved to Binghamton in late January to handle material from computer manufacturers.
