The PQ Recycling Plant in Farmingdale is one of only two in NYS that purchase redeemed plastic bottles. It then sends them on a two-hour journey – transforming the bottles into a product that can be reused to make more bottles, containers and even clothes. It can be done with less of a carbon footprint than making brand-new bottles. The plant keeps 1 billion bottles out of the landfill each year, instead of shipping plastic overseas. Recycling plants are the way to go. PQ also recycles 2 million pounds of bottle caps each year, with most of them made into decking material.
