Dow, WestRock and Nexus establish circular economy for hard-to-recycle plastics in US Hefty EnergyBag program

Reynolds Consumer Products’ Hefty EnergyBag program has diverted more than two million pounds of hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills in the US. This year, Cobb County, a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, is partnering WestRock and Nexus to collect 100 tons of typically unrecyclable plastics through a local Hefty EnergyBag program. 

Dow and Keep Cobb Beautiful launched the program in Cobb County in 2018, collecting hard-to-recycle plastics at curbside and converting them into valued resources, including fuel, park benches, composite decking and concrete blocks.
