DENVER (May 15, 12:30 p.m. ET) — Alpine Waste & Recycling is now taking mixed rigid plastics for processing at its Denver recycling plant.
Commerce City, Colo.-based Alpine Waste said it is the first company in the Denver area to actively seek mixed rigid plastics, such as lawn furniture, five-gallon buckets and pallets, according to a news release.
The company, which recently expanded its recycling plant, said it is able to handle the heavy plastics because its facility has a long pre-sort line.
The plant also has an open layout and chutes built into the line that have the capacity to handle the plastics, according to a news release.
