Whether you are a buyer or seller of one or more grades of recycled plastic, the experienced counsel and reliable service of Midland Davis can help to control your operational costs and aid our environment as well.
Consider the reasons that plastics have become such a valuable commodity. For one, it takes 88 percent less energy to make new products from recycled material when compared to the raw materials. Secondly, there’s the law of supply and demand. Americans recycle only about 25 percent of the plastic produced domestically. Perhaps most importantly, each ton of new plastic made from recycled plastic saves nearly 700 barrels of oil when compared to using only raw materials.
By partnering with Midland Davis to recycle your plastics graded #1 through #7, you can take advantage of this attractive market for your plastic waste, by-products or outdated materials. You may also significantly reduce your landfill charges, as each ton of plastic consumes, on average, about 30-cu. yards per ton of landfill space.
Included among the many services we deliver through our commercial services division are:
» Purchasing straight and combination loads » Long-term trailer placement » Domestic transport via 53-foot truck or rail » Worldwide export container shipment
In addition to spotting trailers or waste collection containers on site, Midland Davis can also supply balers, compactors and material handling equipment. We’ll also be pleased to assist with financing when required.
Business owners and managers with significant volumes of plastic refuse would be well advised to consult with Midland’s experts to devise the most profitable and convenient pick-up or delivery program.
Also available to you is the experienced counsel of our lead broker for plastics, Stuart Abowitz.
