Joshen Encourages our Suppliers and Customers to Recycle

During customer on-site evaluations, often times Joshen personnel have witnessed shrink wrap and other recyclable products not being recycled. Joshen has been able to connect many of our customers with our recycling partners, resulting in recycling programs being implemented and our customers are now generating income for recycling their used materials.    

If Joshen is awarded business from a customer and the product is replacing existing product, we investigate the resin codes to see if the material is recyclable. As an example, we delivered 450 new outdoor trash containers to a large venue customer, but also coordinated the pick-up of the old trash containers that were delivered to a recycling company.

Joshen Paper Implements Plastic Recycling Programs

Shrink Wrap

Everyday, Joshen receives truckloads upon truckloads of supply products into our distribution centers. As Joshen employees are pulling orders, there are hundreds of pounds of used shrink wrap around pallets from received supply products. Joshen employees full-time staff to bale on-site all the used plastic shrink wrap. This is backhauled by a recycling company that recycles the shrink wrap, and uses the resins in their manufacturing process.
