Green Impact, a PET reclaimer focused on recycling PET Thermoform packaging in North America, with facilities in the United States and Mexico. After receiving material at their facility, the Green Impact team breaks open bales to screen for non-thermoform material. Then the material is ground into small flakes and washed, removing contaminants like food residue or labels. The final step is optical sorting. The whole process produces 100% recycled, food-grade plastic ready to be turned into new clamshell containers.Their biggest buyer of recycled plastic is Driscoll Berry Company. Resell PET TCWF, PET Pellets, and PET fines.
