Recycling operations across North America are adding additional processing capacity, taking in a growing amount of material displaced by export market upheavals.
To keep up with the evolving domestic market landscape, Plastics Recycling Update is charting the processing capacity growth in an online map.
This tool covers expansions that were announced or completed starting in 2017, when unprecedented turbulence hit the U.S. scrap plastics processing industry. It draws information from our previous reporting, other news sources and a recent list published by the Northeast Recycling Council.
Each point on the map includes additional details about the project where available, as well as links to more information.
The map will be periodically updated as additional projects are announced.
