RECYCLE YOUR NPE2024 BOOTH’S PLASTICS SCRAP

Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) is offering a complimentary, full-service program to recycle plastic scrap generated during NPE2024. Plastic scrap is defined as plastic material manufactured on the show floor that features recycling codes 1 through 7 and needs to be repurposed.

THE NPE RECYCLING PROGRAM 

Free to participating exhibitors, the NPE Recycling Program is sponsored by Commercial Plastics Recycling (CPR), Conair and WEIMA. The program was enthusiastically embraced in 2015 and 2018, and we’re excited to watch it exceed expectations in 2024.

If your exhibit plans include generating large volumes of scrap, please design your booth space to include an area for collection container storage.

With your help, we can meet our goal: No plastic scrap generated during NPE2024 will be disposed of as waste.
