A Sarnia company has become a world leader in the reprocessing of used industrial and consumer plastics.
Entropex President Keith Bechard says they’ve developed a process to recover, then recycle “Bulky Rigid” plastics: things such as old lawn chairs, children’s slides and laundry baskets.
They recover these items from area municipalities and from as far away as Chicago and New York, diverting them from landfills.
The new recycling technology has resulted in an extra shift being added to the 180,000 sq.ft. Lougar Ave. facility. 22 new employees have been hired, bringing the payroll to 200.
