The plastics recycling company NextLife, based in Boca Raton, Fla., has formed a strategic relationship with the U.K. company 300 Recycling. Under the terms of the deal, NextLife will use 300 Recycling’s collection arm to expand NextLife’s plastics recycling services in the United Kingdom.

NextLife converts plastic scrap into U.S. Food and Drug Administration- and Health Canada-approved plastic resins. The company currently supplies recycled-content resin to global customers in a variety of industries.

"This strategic partnership allows NextLife to process more material from around the world, extending NextLife offerings to the U.K. and Europe," says Robert Dishman, executive vice president of global supply chain for NextLife. "We plan to work together to create new product offerings and recycling opportunities in the United Kingdom."

300 Recycling, based in Cheshire, U.K., is involved in all aspects of plastic recycling and niche recycling services.

Ian Glassbrook, managing director of 300 Recycling, says, "300 Recycling welcomes this exciting opportunity to collaborate with NextLife. The partnership with NextLife will enable 300 Recycling to offer our clients a real closed loop process, turning their waste into a resource for new products with NextLife's sustainable resin solutions."
