For decades, Northwest Polymers has been purchasing the plastic scrap material that the commercial and manufacturing industries produce, providing the perfect answer to their waste plastic disposal problems. But there is more to it than simply picking up crates, trays, buckets and barrels and putting them through a process. Recognizing and handling different types of plastic is a significant too.
