YOU CAN BE A JOB CREATOR

The Carolinas plastics recycling industry is growing. About 1,700 people are directly employed in this industry. That’s great news for the economy. What is less realized is that we need to recycle more plastic bottles. Over 70% of all plastic bottles are thrown away. Companies right here in the Carolinas who make new products from plastic bottles CAN’T find enough recycled plastic to run their plants efficiently.

That’s why we are putting the call out for everyone to recycle more plastic bottles.

What can you do? Take the empty water or soda bottles that you have in your car, house, work or on-the-go and put those bottles in the recycling bin. Put your shampoo and laundry detergent bottles in the recycling bin rather than in the trash can.

The simple act of recycling plastic bottles creates well-paying jobs. And companies that have a good supply of recycled bottles will continue to invest and expand their businesses in North and South Carolina.
