This video shows how a plastic bottle goes from the recycling bin to new products as well as examples of the over 3,500 jobs and economic impacts plastic bottle recycling creates in the Carolinas. The bottle is shown being initially sorted at companies like Sonoco in Raleigh, NC, then converted into intermediate industrial flake and pellet products at Southeast Grinding and E-Z Products respectively, both located in Cheraw, SC and processed into fiber at Palmetto Synthetics in Kingstree, SC making it ready for production of consumer goods like clothing, carpet and new bottles.
This video was produced by thevideoslab.com for the “Your Bottle Means Jobs” campaign of the Carolinas Plastics Recycling Council (CPRC) and the National Association for PET Container Resources (NAPCOR)
