FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Clarkston, Georgia (April 24, 2019) — US Plastics Recovery, a leading processor of post-industrial plastic scrap, exhibited at the Friends of Refugees Job Fair on April 19, 2019 at the Clarkston Community Center in Clarkston, Georgia. This year’s conference had over 500 attendees from over 20 countries and over 30 exhibitors and sponsors.
The April event is USPR’s first time presenting at the fair. USPR president Daniel Nolan stated “USPR has several United Nations designated refugees working at our Lawrenceville facility. We have found them to be highly dedicated employees that day-in and day-out put out finished products that compete directly with virgin resins in many stringent end-use applications.”
“To gain UN refugee status, an individual had to have been forced to flee his or her home country because of persecution, war, or violence. Many refugees have endured hardships that are difficult to contemplate. The US is very picky regarding the refugees admitted to this nation. The interview process for US entry is extensive. It requires the UN designee to prove positive reasons to be admitted into the US program. The organizer of the fair, Friends of Refugees, brings together refugees, non-profits, and hiring employers in pursuit of refugee well-being, education, and employment. US Plastics Recovery is honored to be a sponsor of this organization.”
Established in 2006, USPR is a leading re-processor of post-industrial polymer scrap and provider of destruction services. With its facility just north of Atlanta in Lawrenceville, Georgia, USPR currently processes approximately 30 million pounds of scrap polymer annually back into quality molding materials suitable as a substitute for virgin plastics for the automotive and other industries around the world.
