Pottstown, PA works with contractor to create first-in-the-nation flexible plastic recycling pilot

Pottstown, PA Flexible Plastic Recycling Pilot Contractor

In Progress

Council members approved a contract with J.P. Mascaro & Sons to carry out the pilot. Flexible plastics including grocery bags, bubble wrap, and food pouches are placed in recycling bins for curbside collection. The contractor received funds from Materials Recovery for the Future to convert flexible plastics into rFlex composites for resale. Local residents were sent mailers and found informational stickers inside their bins prior to the pilot.
