SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association has appointed Commercial Plastics Recycling (CPR) as the official recycling company for the NPE2015 international plastics exposition.
CPR will be responsible for collecting and sorting scrap from equipment operated by exhibitors participating in SPI’s “NPE Recycles” program, and recycling it at the company headquarters in Tampa, Fla., fewer than 70 miles from the site of NPE2015 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
While the NPE Recycles program for NPE2012 handled 260,208 lbs. (118 metric tons) of material, the total for NPE2015 is likely to be even greater, SPI estimated. “Based on the number and sizes of booths taken at last month’s Space Draw, there will be larger exhibits at NPE2015 and more equipment operating on the show floor,” said Lori Campbell, SPI’s director of trade show operations. Campbell also noted that more than 300 exhibitors thus far say they will be running machinery.
NPE2015 will take place Monday through Friday, March 23-27, 2015, at the Orange County Convention Center.
