There continues to be a big push to increase recycled post-consumer plastics use in bag production especially in the state of California.

Garbage bags sold in California have been required to be made with 10% post-consumer plastic for nearly 30 years. And since 2016, concurrent with a single-use bag ban at retail stores, the state has required that all reusable plastic bags be made with 20% post-consumer plastic. That requirement increases to 40% next year.

There are several companies that have received grant funding to push plastic recycling in California.

If your company has been on the fence on turn key plastic recycling systems and processing to create product now is the time to move forward.

Hirate America has solutions to provide full turn key plastic recycling systems with a combination of full wash lines with shredders (Lindner Resource, specializing in waste management)  and all-in-one shredder + extruder + pelletizer by Next Generation Recycling (NGR).
