Vycom Corp. (Scranton, PA) recently announced that AZEK Building Products, a sister company, unveiled its new green recycling plant in Wilmington, OH. This dedicated facility accepts post-consumer and post-industrial recycled polyethylene materials from recyclers, waste management companies and municipalities for reprocessing into multiple product lines including TimberTech deck boards and Vycom sheet products.
The company will continue exploring ways to recycle other types of plastic waste across multiple markets and end-uses.
According to a statement released by AZEK, “Plastic and wood materials sourced by recyclers are being used to create the core of all TimberTech composite PRO and EDGE deck boards (both made with 100% recycled resin). More than 55 million pounds of plastic is expected to be recycled this summer alone, transforming shampoo bottles, milk jugs, plastic wrap and more into dazzling, durable decking material.” The goal is to recycle up to 200 million lbs. of waste material by 2020.
