Canadian plastic recycling is far from good

 Canadian plastic recycling is far from good

There is no recycling company in Canada that can recycle multi-layer materials. The hard facts are that over 90% of Canadian plastic ends up in landfills. There is no scalable technology today that can tear apart multi-layer plastics used to package meat, cheese, and fish.

Duropac has taken a pragmatic approach - supplying shrink bags, rollstock films, and pouches that biodegrade within 26 months in low oxygen environments. Landfills are perfect environments for anaerobic bacteria due to the extremely low oxygen levels. These conditions are suitable for the anaerobic bacteria to ingest our plastics and convert them to beneficial soil nutrients.
