Vycom (Scranton, PA), a manufacturer of plastic sheet products, received the inaugural Environmental Impact Award from the International Association of Plastics Distribution (IAPD).
The award was presented to Vycom executives during the annual IAPD Conference, held Aug. 16-19, in Louisville, KY.
The honor was awarded to Vycom based on the company’s commitment to sustainability, particularly its recently launched PVC recycling program. The program was developed to take back and recycle printed and unprinted PVC sheets, as well as scraps and drops from finishing and fabricating.
The program is intended for users of PVC, PE and acrylic products – in coordination with authorized distributors for drop-off or collection – to recycle used signage and scrap, which is returned to company recycling facilities and used to manufacture the Vycom’s residential and commercial products.
Vycom was also honored with the IAPD Marketing Gold Award, a distinction given to IAPD member companies that promote the positive benefits of performance plastics and leverage the marketing tools available to them.
