Green Line Polymers, Inc. installs NGR's largest recycling machine
GLP, an Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (“ADS”) (NYSE: WMS) recycling subsidiary, has recently installed the largest NGR recycling machine ever built capable of recycling well over 4,000 lbs. per hour of plastics scrap materials in a variety of forms.
Their recent installation will recycle high volumes of post-industrial PE scrap materials. This recycled product will then be a raw material building block for the next generation of ADS corrugated piping products and water management solutions (WMS). Green Line Polymers is one of the largest recyclers of polymer products in North America.
