Frequently Asked Questions

Birch Plastics does not delay payment with net 30 or 60-day terms like many companies in this industry. When dealing with Birch Plastics it is simple: We pay COD with wire transfer or check as soon as we receive and test the material.
We purchase post-industrial and single stream post-consumer plastic scrap. Examples include broken crates, dunnage trays, pallets, pipe, buckets, scrap parts, runners, bins, carts, turnings, bailed film, sheet cut-offs, trim scrap, post-industrial food packaging, and many other types plastics.
Usually, engineering-grade materials like Polycarbonate, ABS, or Nylon have more value than commodity-grade plastics such as Polyethylene and Polypropylene. Color also can affect value, light-colored plastics are harder to turn black than dark-colored plastics. If it’s possible, you should try and keep light colors and the dark colors separated.
Clean scrap is where the value is for the seller. For example, if your scrap plastic has no none-compatible materials that need to be disassembled before processed, such as stickers, paper, wood, metal, or dirt, we can pay more for it. However, if we have to add labor and time to remove those items then we have to consider the cost and pay less to cover the expense.
We like to purchase in truckload quantities which could be a single item or mixed segregated items to make a full truckload. Depending on the type of scrap plastic a truckload may range from 10,000 lbs. to 40,000 lbs.
Absolutely! Birch processes over 25 million pounds per year, and it all arrives at our plant on a truck! We have great relationships with shipping companies that allow us to get deep discounted rates. We will shop for the best freight rate, and determine your quote based on scrap plastic price minus the freight cost.
