Recyclers ... Is The Correct Color Important To You?
Recyclers ... Is The Correct Color Important To You? Color has become an important benchmark of quality in recycled plastics. Diverse products such as bottles & bags, clothing & carpet to lumber & construction materials are being made from post-commercial and post-consumer scrap plastic.
