Arkansas Poly & Printing, which joined forces with Trex in June 2022, has contributed more than 1 million lbs. of recycled plastic film packaging to Trex to be converted into Trex’s composite decking.
“This is an impressive milestone and a testament to the energy and commitment of the Arkansas Poly & Printing team,” said Zach Lauer, VP of supply chain for Trex Company.
“Our mission of making quality packaging with the least impact to the environment is in perfect alignment with Trex,” said Sarah Sparks Diebold, co-owner of Arkansas Poly & Printing. “This alliance further exhibits our commitment to sustainability within the packaging industry and adds value to our products by providing a tangible ‘next life’ for our resin-based packaging.”
Arkansas Poly & Printing is a Flexo-packaging manufacturer with a focus on diverting plastic films from landfills by developing materials that are readily recyclable. In addition to recycling raw materials and printed film, the company encourages its customers to adopt recycling programs and offers resources to guide their efforts.
