Taking action to keep LDPE out of landfills.
Did you know?
When you throw your shrink-wrap into the recycling dumpster it will end up in the landfill. This plastic must be recycled completely separate or it is considered contaminated.
Most marinas and boatyards do not properly recycle the shrink-wrap removed from their boats. Like so many, they struggle to find a cost effective approach and get lost in logistical challenges.
Northeast Ohio has struggled to provide a consistent, sustainable program to streamline the process of recycling shrink-wrap.
In turn, boaters recognize they are accountable for their carbon footprint but feel they lack clear coordination to execute proper recycling practices.
You can make a difference this year!
Being the change we wish to see..
Mindful Mariners will continue to provide the service that will aid in keeping shrink-wrap (LDPE) out of landfills!
For a low cost, we will remove your shrink-wrap and deliver it to a recycling facility in Southern Ohio that has the ability to repurpose this plastic through the creation of guardrail blocks and composite lumber.
We have a new addition to the shrink-wrap recycling team this year, a shrink-wrap recycling truck!
Help be an advocate for proper shrink-wrap disposal and let your marina know that pick-up options are available!
