About USPR

USPR receives industrial polymer scrap generated by manufacturers and turns it into high-quality molding materials to be used again in other plastics manufacturing. USPR’s finished regrind is clean enough to often act as a replacement for virgin and reprocessed pellet.  End-use applications for USPR’s finished product include carpet, trash carts, under-the-hood automotive parts, consumer storage bins available at major retailers, toys, agricultural films, rainwater management pipe, and many other commonly-used products. USPR works with major and medium-sized entities, e.g., petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and multinational corporations. USPR does not operate any general waste facilities or MRFs and does not does not deal with the public.

USPR specializes in difficult-to-recover materials by utilizing its wide range of capabilities and high throughput rates. USPR can separate out dirt, paint, brine, talc, granule, pellet, various polymers, metals, and many other types of materials to produce a finely-tuned raw material suitable for automotive and other industries.

USPR’s machinery also is highly suitable for the  high-volume destruction of products, data, and documents. USPR’s main shredder is quite large and can process up to 30,000 lbs. per hour.  Various down-stream equipment can reduce down to DoD specification.  USPR recycles the destroyed materials where economically possible. In 2016, USPR recovered approximately 21 million pounds of polymer that went back into consumer and durable subassemblies around the globe.  Our raw materials come from familiar names and go back into products that are used by many residents of the US.

USPR is constantly improving its performance in the areas of employee safety, process control, customer service, outbound material quality, and waste reduction. USPR is a practiced and committed environmental steward. We work with both our sources and customers to help them reduce their impacts on our planet. We do this by sharing our hard-won knowledge of recycled materials to enable them to use recyclable materials in their products.
