EAST TAUNTON, MASS. (Nov. 10, 2 p.m. ET) — PVC trim manufacturer Advanced TrimWright Inc. is setting up a program to recycle PVC through participating lumberyards.
The company will provide lumberyards with 44-inch-wide-by-44-inch-deep collection boxes, capable of holding the equivalent of 52,000 water bottles. Contractors can drop off PVC scrap in the boxes, and East Taunton-based ATW will collect them when they are full.
The company expects to have more than 100 containers in service by the end of 2012.
ATW said in a news release that it has contracted with a recycler to reprocess the PVC so ATW can use it to make new products.
