Scrap is run through CMI's recycling system, separated into recyclable components and later compressed into bricks or bales for material recovery.
The packaging scrap, be it paper, laminates or plastics, will be sheared, shredded and separated into recyclable components and later compressed into bricks or bales for material recovery. The company now has the capacity to securely store and process 80,000 lb of packaging materials daily. "With the constant threat of product counterfeiting, secure destruction has become a necessary component when handling large volumes of labeling and packaging materials," says Tom Mele, the president of CMI. "We now offer a green recycling alternative to the traditional incineration that generated substantial greenhouse gases."

The system also provides financial incentives for clients. Instead of destroying valuable materials in an incinerator, CMI hopes to return some of the recycling value to its suppliers. Clients will even have the ability to view the destruction process of their packaging materials via VIP access to either streaming or archived video. —PlasticsToday Staff
