Reclaiming previously used material reduces the amount of material that would eventually end up in landfills and also reduces the carbon footprint required to recreate these same products.
COI currently recycles plastics in the form of IV bags and other plastic products. Once received the products are stripped of connections and/or tubing. The remaining plastic sheets are then sorted to separate printed from non-printed plastic which is then pressure baled.
Bales of recycled materials are then warehoused until shipment to manufacturers for use in creating new products.
Contract recycling work is available in conjunction with local and regional businesses and gives program participants the opportunity to develop prevocational skills while being paid according to strict guidelines of wage and hour laws.
