Plastic recycling — really all recycling for that matter — is increasing through a national program for Toyota Motor Corp.’s North American spare parts business.
The effort includes the company’s largest parts centers in Ontario, Calif., and Hebron, Ky., as well as regional parts distribution centers in Cincinnati, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland, Ore.
The goal is to eventually expand the effort throughout the company’s other parts distribution centers over the next couple of years.
Toyota is using Boles Parts Supply Inc. as a contractor for its recycling, including parts and packaging, through the company’s National Scrap Program. Boles provides a single vendor source to take all of the recyclables from the six current sites in a single-stream format, according to Toyota.
