Partnering with local farmers, Encore Recycling® each year collects, washes, and recycles up to 100 million pounds of agricultural plastic that would otherwise get sent to landfills. It’s a program that sets the standard for a sustainable, closed-loop recycling system.
In addition to numerous independent growers, several multi-national brands work with us to ensure their plastic is collected and recycled.
