Major mixed plastics recycling project—anyone interested?

Article-Major mixed plastics recycling project—anyone interested?

We've been contacted by someone seeking a recycler who can handle mixed toys made from ABS, HIPS, PE, PP, rigid PVC, steel, and SBS.

Some are painted/fastened with screws, include batteries/LEDs, labels...a real mess, it sounds like. In short, he is working to organize collection of all of the kids' "happy meal" toys in the U.S. (the ones kids get with meals at some restaurants) so these can be recycled. it sounds like he has a handle on the collection end of things. Now he needs recyclers, then to identify processors interested in the separated scrap...or ones who could process the mixed scrap, in which case there'd be no need for sorting and separation of the scrap. 

Interested in being part of this project? We'll connect you; send your name and details to [email protected].
