Salco Products a Gold Level Partner with Cope Plastics
Dear Customers/Vendors/Business Associates:
As part of our continuous commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility, we participate in a Solutions-Based Customer Recycling Award Program (or S.C.R.A.P. for short) to recycle our unused plastic materials. Through this exciting program, we are able to both benefit our bottom line and improve the communities we live and work in.
Information about S.C.R.A.P.
Cope Plastics, Inc. has been recycling for over 20 years, but since establishing their solar-powered processing center in 2012, they are now making an extraordinary ecological impact. Their facility located on Humbert Road in Alton has recycled 3.7 million pounds of post-industrial plastic scrap and created new local jobs. Cope actually recycles 90% of the materials used in their business process, equating to 262,000 pounds of paper, metal, oil, cardboard, and electronics annually. In 2013 they implemented a single-stream program to provide over 100 employees from smaller communities access to recycling and diverting 200,000 pounds of post-consumer materials from landfills.
