Our Recycled Content Vision

We are working towards improving recycling, increasing recycled content in our products, and building sustainable communities by developing recycling ecosystems around our operations. Our long-term roadmap involves collaborating with processors, suppliers and customers to solving for increased local collection, processing, and use opportunities.
