Trex Launches Plastic Recycling Incentives

With one billion pounds of recycled post-consumer plastic collected and counting, Trex Company’s NexTrex retail recycling program presents suppliers with an opportunity to be part of one of the largest plastic recycling initiatives in North America. To recognize existing partners for their commitment to sustainability and encourage others to get involved, NexTrex is a supplier incentive program that will reward partners with more than just good karma points for promoting and collecting post-consumer plastic film for recycling. The program allows participating retailers and other partners to earn points for their contributions to the Trex recycling program, which can be redeemed for high-performance Trex products. Partners can earn points for achieving a variety of actions and milestones, including years of participation, annual program growth, in-store program promotion, and proactive community engagement. Trex reclaims more than 450 million pounds of polyethylene plastic waste annually in the making of its decking, which is comprised of 95 per cent recycled material. Among its largest sources are grocery stores and other retailers who partner with Trex to responsibly dispose of plastic shopping bags and polyethylene film used to wrap products and pallets.
