Verdeco Recycling, Inc. is a California-based company committed to producing high-quality recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) material for use in food packaging and other high-value applications. In the summer of 2012, Verdeco Recycling opened a brand new facility in South Gate, CA that has capacity to produce up to 50 million pounds annually of FDA-approved, food-grade recycled PET.
Ever since the first PET bottle was produced, PET consumption has been steadily growing and billions of plastic containers are produced and used by customers annually. Proper disposition of post-consumer PET bottles is a big and growing concern. Simply throwing used containers into landfills or exporting them is not a viable option and would be a tremendous waste of natural resources.
We strongly believe that responsible plastics recycling is an integral part of sustainable development and is an area where the U.S. should lead the world. We encourage use of recycled materials as a responsible way of saving natural resources and protecting our planet for future generations.
