Improve Your Bottom Line and Help the Environment with Plastic Bags

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 30, 2012

Many businesses use stretch film and pallet wrap for either shipping or storing, poly bags and films and LDPE and HDPE plastics. If you are, you can help your bottom line and help the environment.

If you are using the above products then you are also disposing of the above products. In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, Atlantic Poly would like to help you in your recycling efforts. At Atlantic Poly we use recycled plastics for our recycled plastic bags and roll-off dumpster liners. If you are disposing of the above products we offer a pick-up service for this material after it is “baled” anywhere in the country. 

By removing these plastic materials from your wasted stream, you

  • Help your company's bottom line
  • Help your environment
  • Reduce your waste disposal costs
  • Potential for value of materials recycled
  • Possible tax benefits for recycling material

Don’t forget, the plastic will then be turned into other products like our recycled plastic bags and roll-off liners. Please contact Atlantic Poly if we can help in your recycling efforts.  

Recycled Plastic Bags for Green Business Practices

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 27, 2012

Plastic bags get a bad wrap, but in actuality plastic bags are more “green” than paper bags. Using a recycled plastic bag brings that even a step further. A plastic bag made from recycled plastic means that there is a blend of recycled resin and virgin resin.

There are no 100% recycled plastic bags because the bag would have no integrity. It wouldn’t be very strong.  At Atlantic Poly we have recycled plastic bags. These recycled bags are normally made with a blend of 30% Recycled resin and 70% Virgin resin.

What is the recycled blend made of? It is made of post industrial scrap and post consumer scrap. From the names you can probably hazard a pretty good guess as to what they are but here is an explanation. Post Industrial Scrap is plastic collected from industrial and manufacturing facilities. Post Consumer Scrap is collected primarily from the retail/consumer market.

If you are interested in using recycled plastic bags at your business, do not hesitate to ask for a recycled logo to be added to the bag. Showing your company’s commitment to green business practices can go a long way. For information on recycled plastic bags, contact Atlantic Poly.

Protection from Hazardous Materials with Drum Liners

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 02, 2012

If your business uses or comes into contact with hazardous materials, friable materials or disposable materials that need to be contained, drum liners are the solution. Every day it gets more and more challenging to dispose of hazardous chemicals, blood and body fluids, or friable materials. Regulations make it harder and harder to maintain standards of removal and disposal.

However, using drum liners affords you additional security against leaks and spills. There is nothing worse than exposing yourself to fines and the environment and your employees to hazards through spillage.

In any industrial facility, where hazardous materials are being disposed of or removed, the possibility of exposure cannot be ignored.

DrumSkins™ or Poly Plastic Drum Liners from Atlantic Poly, Inc. provide an extra level of safety, reliability and protection, especially when used for dense or viscous materials. Contact us because drum liners are a necessary precaution in keeping chemical contents, body fluids or friable materials separated from other materials and waste products.
