TLMI has announced that two of the association’s Sustainability Committee’s subcommittees have launched interactive maps that show the locations of recyclers and waste disposal sites for liner and matrix materials.
The release liner subcommittee has launched a map that indicates paper and PET release liner recyclers across the United States and Canada and the matrix subcommittee has launched a map indicating matrix waste byproduct disposal sites.
The subcommittees’ goals in making these interactive maps available to association members is to offer companies critical resources as they develop and carry out their own sustainability initiatives.
TLMI started providing association members with sustainability resources that included recyclers and non-landfill matrix disposal sites a decade ago in the association’s Recycling Handbook. The publishing of the handbook was one of the central initiatives of the association’s Sustainability Committee to ensure members had resources available as they began their sustainability journeys and looked for ways to recycle liner waste and to keep matrix byproducts out of landfills.
The liner recycling and matrix disposal maps will be available on TLMI’s website in early January 2023.
