GAR-Plastics - frequently asked questions (FAQs).

What plastics are we most interested in bringing in to recycle?

We are always looking for new streams of HMWPE, HIPS, and HDPE materials.

Do you recycle post-consumer materials?

Typically, GAR Plastics does not process post-consumer materials, such as PET. However, we are known to have some loads available for sale from time-to-time. Our primary focus has been post-industrial plastic material.

What dictates the value of plastic materials?

Plastic material typically follows the price of oil and natural gas. Since plastic is a byproduct of oil and natural gas it is expected that resin pricing follows these two markets. Keep in mind supply and demand also has an effect on the resin market as well.
