RPP Containers’ Bulk Container Recycling Program Records Five Years of Sustained Growth

Five million pounds of recycled plastic projected for 2015

CINCINNATI--()--RPP Containers, a leading manufacturer, stocking distributor, and recycler of plastic collapsible bulk containers continues to record strong growth in its bulk container recycling program. Since the program’s first major expansion in 2009, recycled plastic production has increased from one million pounds annually to about three million pounds in 2014. The program is on track to produce five million pounds of high-quality recycled plastic in 2015.

The recycling operation was originally launched in 2006 as a service to RPP’s customers who had unwanted bulk containers and did not want to put them into a landfill. Today, RPP Containers is on its way to becoming North America’s largest exclusive recycler of plastic collapsible bulk containers.

James Bartlett, Director of Operations at RPP Containers, says, "We’ve invested heavily in a 45,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility and one of North America’s largest plastic shredders to create a safe and highly efficient operation. Unlike many plastic recyclers who must cut bulk containers into relatively small sections, our giant shredder is capable of processing an entire container; the increased throughput capability creates a cost-savings that enables us to pay top dollar to the companies that sell us their old, broken, or obsolete containers.”
