EFS-plastics Opens New Recycling Facility in Lethbridge, Canada

EFS-plastics Opens New Recycling Facility in Lethbridge, Canada

News 29.04.2022

EFS-plastics Inc., a North American plastic recycler, has recently announced that it would open a new processing facility in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, to increase access to recyclables needed to produce its 100% post-consumer resin pellets.

The 70,000 square foot facility will increase EFS’s processing capacity by 10,000 metric tonnes per year, representing a 20% increase. Since April, EFS is accepting #3-7 and #1-7 mixed rigid plastic bales from material recovery facilities (MRFs) located in Western United States and Canada. This investment builds on the strong relationships that EFS has developed with Western MRFs since the Chinese National Sword Policy limited export of residential plastics in 2018.

“As we increase the amount of recycled resin we produce, we remain focused on keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible,” said Martin Vogt, President and CEO. “This new location allows us to cut carbon emissions associated with transportation as we extend the impact of our highly-automated, mechanical recycling operations.”

EFS-plastics sees strong opportunities in Western North America to recover more material that is currently lost to landfill or exported overseas. As interest in post-consumer resin grows, EFS is committed to developing domestic end markets that simplify the work of MRFs and provide customers with the high-quality PCR they seek.
