STREAMLINED PROGRAM TURNS REVENUE-POSITIVE
The Challenge: A multiple plant injection molder was informed on a Monday that its recycler was going to stop taking its material on the following Friday. The recycling program was losing money, and the molder had been paying the recycler to accept its materials.
The Solution: Maine Plastics developed a customized recycling program which included in-plant sortation training, customized reporting, and centralized logistics.
The Benefits: Recycling became streamlined, heightening visibility for the entire recycling team as well as the centralized accounting department. Within three months, the program became revenue-positive.
ONE-SOLUTION RECYCLING PROGRAM®
The Challenge: A large automotive molder produced multiple lines of plastics as well as corrugated, office paper, and ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Processing and staging materials cost the molder thousands of dollars for labor, storage, and equipment.
The Solution: Maine Plastics provided a One-Solution Recycling Program® that allowed all materials to be removed on the same trailer.
The Benefits: The company was able to eliminate a warehouse and reallocate employees to production.
ORGANIZED APPROACH PROMOTES CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
The Challenge: A medical molder required a clean environment to collect and store regrind generated in its facility.
The Solution: Maine Plastics provided large, stackable, plastic bulk containers with tops. The containers are swapped out with each pick up of material.
The Benefits: The supplier’s warehouse is organized and clean, earning compliments from visitors on its appearance and cleanliness.
