Environmental Aspects of Coroplast®

Environmental Aspects of Coroplast®

Technical Bulletin - CSS-011-93

Reducing environmental waste means looking for ways to reduce material used in our products, reusing products whenever possible, and recycling when the product's useful life is over.

Coroplast products contribute to the reduction of environmental waste on all three aspects.

  • Reduce
    Coroplast's twin-wall fluted structure produces strength and rigidity at a lower weight, thereby reducing the amount of material required.
  • Reuse
    The durability of Coroplast in outdoor use and in packaging applications means it can be used longer and reused over and over enabling a longer useful life.
  • Recycle
    Coroplast uses polypropylene copolymers which makes for easy recycling at the end of their useful life. Polypropylene, being a polyolefin, recycles in processing streams such as plastic milk cartons and detergent bottles. Contact your local plastics recycling center for local information on polypropylene recycling.

Coroplast continues to create new products and uses based on the need to reduce, reuse, and recycle plastic. Look to Coroplast as one of the solutions.
