Primex Recycling Operation

Since 1965 Primex has made plastics recycling a major focus of its business. With advancing technology and commitment to sustainability, Primex has been able to consolidate and modernize the entire process of collecting scrap from their plants and getting current customers onboard the program. New standard procedures for processing scrap and turning it into quality sheet products not only save money but keep material out of the waste stream.
