Alpine Waste & Recycling, a recycling company based in Commerce City, Co., has started accepting mixed rigid plastics for processing at its Altogether Recycling plant in Denver. Alpine claims that it is the first company in the Denver area that actively solicits mixed rigid plastics for recycling and the action is in keeping with Alpine’s emphasis on innovation.

“Alpine Waste & Recycling is constantly looking for innovative ways to divert material away from landfills,” says Brent Hildebrand, vice president, recycling, for Alpine. “We go to great lengths to find markets for these odd materials and then process them in our plant.”

Alpine, which recently expanded its Denver recycling plant, says it is able to handle the heavy plastics because of the company’s long pre-sort line. Alpine also has an open layout and chutes built into the line that have the capacity to handle the ample amounts of plastics.
