DuPont Protection Solutions Introduces New Recycling Program for Its Tyvek Cargo Covers
At the 2017 IQPC Global Forum in Chicago, DuPont Protection Solutions will announce a new courtesy recycling service for its range of DuPont Tyvek Cargo Covers.
"Shippers have told us they want a dedicated recycling service that is convenient to use and guarantees the product will be recycled in an environmentally responsible manner," Linnette Lopez, North America segment manager at DuPont Protection Solutions, said in a statement. "Our Tyvek Cargo Covers external layer is made of a 100 percent high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and can be mechanically recycled and yet some of it ends up in a landfill often through simple oversight or lack of local processing facilities. The new recycling program is provided to our Tyvek customers at no charge and, depending on volumes, the spent covers can either be picked up from site or dropped off at a local processing center."
All Tyvek Cargo Covers are included in the program. Reclaimed Tyvek material will be recycled into a high-grade polymeric feedstock for processing into new products such as decking boards, street furniture, playground equipment, siding materials and shipping pallets.
