NPE2012: Maine Plastics as the Official Recycler
Next year’s NPE2012 international plastics exposition will be so big that the reusable scrap generated in just one day by equipment operating on the exhibit floor will amount to tens of thousands of pounds.
To prevent the waste of this valuable material, SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association has appointed Maine Plastics, Inc., Zion, IL, USA, as the official recycler for NPE2012. The company is charged with the collection, separation, transportation, and reprocessing of production-line scrap, as well as such other waste as the PET bottles left behind by more than 60,000 visitors. NPE2012 is the fifth consecutive edition of the triennial NPE for which Maine Plastics has provided these services.
Organized by SPI, NPE2012 will take place April 1-5, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida. Maine Plastics will coordinate with SPI, the OCCC, exhibitors, and vendors in administering the recycling program. Taking part in the program will cost exhibitors no more than if they used standard trash removal services, noted David Spitulnik, president of Maine Plastics.
