Plastic Recovery in Texas

posted by URT Marketing

Our facility in Fort Worth, Texas is proud to be located within the sixth state to pass legislation for plastic recovery. The HB 1953 legislation focuses on new technologies and other unique uses for recycled plastic in an effort to keep the material from ending up in landfills. With new technology, there is already a high demand for plastic in the manufacturing and industrial markets. This bill allows creative solutions, processes, and businesses to ensure plastic recycling and recovery is a valuable raw material product to be used in other industries. Plastic recycling and recovery is anticipated to create more job opportunities. According to Waste Advantage magazine, “Experts determined that converting just 25 percent of the state’s post-use plastics into manufacturing feedstocks and transportation fuels could support 40 advanced recycling and recovery facilities and generate $501 million in economic output annually”.
