The SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association and organizer of next year's big plastics show in Orlando, NPE2012, have tapped Maine Plastics to again be the official plastics recycler of the event. NPE, held every three years, has in the past been in Chicago, and SPI predicts the Orlando setting will allow for more processing machinery running at the show. For Maine Plastics, that will mean more output to collect and recycle.
NPE2012 is the fifth consecutive edition of the triennial NPE for which Maine Plastics has been the official recycler. According to SPI (Washington, DC), next year's show is shaping up to be so big that the reusable scrap generated in just one day by equipment operating on the exhibit floor will amount to tens of thousands of pounds.
Maine Plastics (Zion, IL) will take on collection, separation, transportation, and reprocessing of production-line scrap, as well as such other waste as the PET bottles left behind by the expected visitor total of 60,000+ professionals. NPE2012 will take place April 1-5, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida....
