Michigan launches pilot shrink-wrap recycling program

The Michigan Clean Marina Program has implemented a shrink-wrap recycling program for Southeast Michigan.

 

Mondo Polymer Technologies of Reno, Ohio, is working with the state's Clean Marina Program for a test-market recycling program. It gets underway today.

 

Shrink-wrap is commonly used for protecting recreational boats from snow, ice, water and debris. Used shrink-wrap is generally deposited in dumpsters that are taken to landfills.

 

This program will save thousands of pounds of shrink-wrap from heading to landfills and provides plastic that Mondo Polymer Tech uses to create recycled products.

 

"We asked Mondo Polymer if they would be interested in picking up shrink-wrap at the Detroit Boat Show at Cobo Center in February as well as at the Spring Boating Expo at the Rock Financial Showplace, Novi, in March," Van Snider, president of the Michigan Boating Industries Association, said in a statement.

 

"After the successful program at both shows, we felt we should move forward with Mondo Polymer Technologies on a test market for Southeast Michigan during the launch season, when thousands of pounds of shrink-wrap are removed from boats just prior to the boating season," he added.

 

Mondo Polymer is starting the program in Southeast Michigan with intentions of expanding to other regions of the state.
