20 Years of Green Business Practices

It Began as a Great Idea

Clean Tech, Plastipak’s recycling affiliate, was founded in 1989 to reclaim the plastic in water containers and other post-consumer packaging. Plastipak’s leaders knew that recycling would extend disposal capacity, save money in disposal costs and conserve natural resources. They saw further growth opportunity in the business’s potential for creating new jobs and providing a reliable, cost-effective resource for the manufacturing industry.

Bottle to Bottle

This modern recycling center initiated the company’s entry into the environmental movement more than 20 years ago. The business proved to be a successful operation and has generated excellent results for Plastipak’s recycling program. Clean Tech recycles billions of bottles per year and continues to invest in recycling technology and operational improvements.

Expanding Recycling to Europe

Today, Plastipak’s recycling capabilities include an additional recycling location in Plastipak Luxembourg, Europe.
