Global Polymers is a thought-leading recycling company that has become a local and global force in recycling hard-to-recycle waste.
How It Works
We reuse, up-cycle, and recycle waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. This redirects waste from a linear system to a circular one, allowing it to continue cycling within our economy.
When it comes to “what to do” with waste, we know that reuse (using something for its original purpose) is always the best option. Why you might ask? That’s because the process of reuse leverages all of the energy and end-materials that were needed to make the original product in the first place.
Closed Loop Recycling is the most efficient and responsible means of reintroducing an industry's waste back into new products.
Global Polymers offers accountable, responsible and sustainable destruction of your CD’s, DVD’s, software and other sensitive items.
Global Polymers will customize a program to fit your recycling needs with our own fleet of equipment.
Logistics, warehouse, distribution, and customer service available to provide efficiency to your business.
Our team will work hand-in-hand with you through the entire process to ensure that our services are customized to fit the needs of your specific facility and waste streams.
Global Polymers partners with a variety of organizations locally and around the world to help recycle hard-to-recycle waste at the facility level.
From helping to recycle large volumes of packaging scrap to personal safety equipment, our regulated waste division furthermore provides products and services to help you facilitate the effective and compliant management of regulated, universal and hazardous waste. This may include bulbs, batteries, and e-waste as well as waste streams stemming from Home Entertainment, Building/Construction, Automotive, Medical/Pharmaceutical, and other waste streams that are potentially harmful to the environment.
You can be assured that we’re smartly and intelligently processing your waste, putting it through a rigorous system that includes stages such as:
Ferrous & Non-Ferrous Metal Removal
Part Disassembly & Destruction
Additionally, we provide inbound and outbound logistics to our customers through Global Freight LLC with a fleet of 53’ van and Bulk Pneumatic Trailers, including “Just In Time” Deliveries and Drop & Hook services.
A rigorous testing protocol needs to be followed to ensure quality and consistency to meet customer specifications.
Recycled plastics can vary from prime resins in a number of ways. However, for high-end consumers of recycled materials, the expectation for their performance and quality is not much different than for prime resins.
Cleaning up a recycled feed stream so it meets the level of quality needed by the end user can be a very technology-intensive process.
For many applications, brand owners are not willing to compromise aesthetic quality or performance of their products. Environmental benefits are no longer linked inextricably with trade-offs in performance, since recycled content really can reach near-prime qualities with today’s reclamation technologies.
To ensure quality, customers using recycled content in high-performance applications will ask recyclers to measure things like intrinsic viscosity (IV), presence of additives and chemicals, and ash content; and control for contaminants and appearance, similar to the expectations they set for prime materials used in manufacturing.
And in Global Polymers, you’ll find no better testing process as we run the gamut for our partners, including:
Lab Line for Product Qualification & Testing
Putting it simply: we recycle the things others can’t.
Intrigued? We certainly hope so! With your help, we can divert untold amounts of waste from landfills and incinerators each month. And create a more sustainable future in the process.
