The world’s largest closed-loop plastic bag recycling plant
Not too long ago some people didn’t know what to do with used plastic bags, so they might have thrown them away. But over the past 10 years best solution for used bags has become to recycle them into new bags, and led to growth in plastics recycling facilities link the NOVOLEX Bag-2-Bag® recycling facility.
NOVOLEX established North America’s only closed-loop recycling program for plastic bags to be a part of this entrepreneurial movement. Bag-2-Bag® recycling allows us to partner with consumers, supermarkets, retailers and restaurants in a way that benefits them all—and creates a cleaner, safer world.
How does it work?
Stores encourage customers to bring in used plastic bags from any source and place them in the collection bins. Hilex Poly picks up the collected bags and ships them to our state-of-the-art recycling plant in North Vernon, Indiana, where the bags are washed and made into new bags.
Recycling Old Bags In To New Bags
Not only does Hilex Poly recycle plastic bags, we also recycle wraps and films. But recycling is a two part process that requires manufacturers to use recovered materials in new products like our Gray is the New Green bag.
True Cradle To Cradle Lifecycle and Process
Did you know that recycling plastic bags and wraps is very cost efficient. Actually it is one of the more cost effective recycling systems when store take back programs like Bag-2-Bag are used. A bag made with recycled content not only maintains excellent strength characteristics, but its cost is similar to a bag made with new plastic.
