NextLife announces new processing plant
By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling
Plastics recycling firm NextLife Asset Recovery has announced plans to invest over $10 million to open a new facility and headquarters office in Rogers, Arkansas.
The company, which produces FDA food-contact level materials from post-consumer polypropylene, polyethylene and polystyrene, says the new plant will, initially, be primarily devoted to collection and sorting. NextLife plans to eventually add production lines to the new facility and says it is open to partnering with manufacturing firms to make finished plastic goods on-site.
The new plant will be the company's second processing facility and NextLife says the expansion will create up to 350 jobs in the local community.
