To further advancements in PET bottle and thermoform recycling, as well as to control its quality, Placon opened its own 70K sq. ft. recycling facility on its Madison campus in 2011. Dedicated to reclaiming discarded plastic PET soda and water bottles as well as thermoformed containers, watch the entire recycling process from bale collection to sorting, grinding and washing the plastic for eventual reuse, thereby truly "closing the loop" on plastics recycling.
