PEI plastics recycler expands markets to U.S., Caribbean
CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI-EnviroAge Plastic Industries, a Prince Edward Island manufacturer of recycled plastic lumber products, has expanded its market horizons to include the U.S. and the Caribbean. The company recently reported its first shipment of recycled plastic lumber to the Dominican Republic and is in the process of manufacturing a flatbed trailer load of utility-grade agricultural fence posts destined for the U.S. midwest. To manufacture its existing line of plastic lumber products, EnviroAge Plastic receives plastic waste from landfill sites, farmers, manufacturing industries, and recycling centres. The collected plastic is prepared and blended into a composite profile mixture used to produce plastic lumber. This innovative product has been used by many different organizations, individuals and industries for decking, docks, playground equipment, boardwalks, picnic tables, benches, garbage receptacles, lobster traps and buoy staffs. The company's domestic markets include Atlantic Canada, Quebec and Ontario.
