Rotational Molding Closed Loop Recycling Program

Birch can convert your scrap plastic back to 35 mesh powder

Birch Plastic partners with Rotational Molding companies to help them reach there plastic recycling goals.

One Challenge the Rotational Molding Industry faces is having the ability to reuse their scrap plastic that is generated during production.  Rotational Molders typically have to find a company to grind the plastic, compound it into pellets, and then pulverize the resin into 35 mesh powder. Most of the time, this process involves serval locations and multiple vendors. After you factor in the freight and time dedicated to it, often Rotational Molders end up selling off their scrap parts because of all the work it takes and freight cost associated with sending it out. Birch has solved this problem with our Closed Loop recycling Program.

Your material is sent back to you ready to be introduced back into your process. Our program will help with your green initiative, and help you lower your part cost substituting a percentage of the recycled plastic resin in place of your higher priced virgin resin.
