Alpek has announced that its subsidiary, Alpek Polyester, has joined The Recycling Partnership as an active member, in support of the organisation’s goals of increasing residential recycling rates and the need for increased availability of recycled materials to enable the creation of circular business models. Alpek is a leading petrochemical company.

Specifically, it is the goal of Alpek Polyester, one of the largest recyclers of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles in the US, to support efforts to improve the availability of recycled PET (rPET) to meet growing customer needs for higher rPET content in end-use products, according to a press release by the company.

The Recycling Partnership helps communities strengthen their recycling programmes by providing funding for curb-side carts, the missing infrastructure needed to recover recyclables from multi-family homes, as well as critical recycling education and operational programmes. Helping residents increase quantity and quality of what they recycle – and ensuring they are recycling correctly – is critical to supporting a circular economy and building a sustainable recycling system in the US.

“We are happy to join The Recycling Partnership to promote and increase PET recycling rates. PET is a versatile and outstanding packaging material that is fully recyclable and brings great value to its many end-uses,” Jon McNaull, VP of PET at Alpek Polyester said.

“We are delighted to not only have Alpek Polyester join The Recycling Partnership, but also support our Circular Economy Accelerator initiatives. The addition of a PET producer and recycler like Alpek Polyester will not only help our efforts to strengthen and expand our mission, but also support our organisation’s goal of creating a healthier US recycling system,” Keefe Harrison, CEO of The Recycling Partnership said.
