PVC Pipe and Fitting Recycling in Action

Recycling & Environment # 2006 Washington DC

Two recycling case studies are presented. The first is the program at Royal Pipe Systems’ plant in Abbotsford, BC. Royal Pipe Systems works with the City of Abbotsford and Marv’s Excavating to collect post-industrial vinyl and reconverts it back into PVC pipe. The second is the program at Specified Fittings’ facility in Bellingham, WA. Specified accepts postindustrial vinyl from area utilities and contractors, which they pelletize, package, and ship to a plastics broker for re-use. The PVC industry’s commitment to programs such as this is further demonstrated with the PVC pipe and fittings recycling policy adopted by the Board of Directors of the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association.
