Post Consumer Resins "PCR" (PET and HDPE)

With new goals being set by state legislation to increase the minimum content requirements of Post Consumer Resin (PCR) in packaging, GIANCO is proud to be be able to provide both certified "PCR" HDPE and FDA approved PET pellets.

Why use "PCR" Resins for the products we buy:

  1. Reduces the amount of material sent into landfills.
  2. Supplements the high cost of virgin resins.
  3. Quality is not sacrificed by using recycled resins.
  4. Meet minimum content legislation
