Plastics Recycling

Plastics Recycling
Our work is in sustainability and manufacturing process design and improvement. We work to minimize plastic post-industrial waste and to recycle what can’t be eliminated, creating valuable durable goods in a financially and ecologically sustainable manner. Our nationwide network of like-minded colleagues and companies helps us to solve difficult and persistent recycling challenges in a wide variety of industries.


Our advocacy work in the plastics industry has led us to the PLASTICS Industry Association. Series One, as a member, is involved in multiple projects.

  • Recycling Committee

    • New End Market Opportunities (NEMO) project

    • Transportation and Industrial Plastics (TIP) Committee

  • End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) project

    • Automotive Post-Consumer bumper fascia recycling​

  • Advanced Recycling Committee

Series One is deeply ingrained in the plastics community through membership in The PLASTICS Industry Association and The Society of Plastics Engineers. These connections give us the ability to benefit our partners through opportunities which other companies and industries have to offer. We regularly work with a broad range of raw material suppliers, processors, equipment manufacturers, and OEMs.
