Recycling With A Purpose

Encore Recycling partners with local growers to collect, wash, and recycle the more than 100 million pounds of agricultural plastic that is currently being disposed of in California landfills each year. This partnership and program is most effective way to help California create the standard for a sustainable and closed-loop recycling system.

This state-of-the-art, 180,000 square foot plastic recycling facility in the Salinas Valley was built with the vision of “recycling with a purpose.” Parent company, US-based, Command Packaging uses this recycled plastic specifically for reusable grocery, shopping and restaurant bags which in turn can be fully recyclable at the end of life, essentially creating a continuous loop of sustainable plastic supply that need not ever see a landfill.

Some of the largest multi-national and recognizable names such as, Dole, Gold Farms, Ramco, Red Blossom Strawberries, as well as many independent growers, are working with Encore Recycling to ensure that their plastic is collected and recycled.
