Maine Plastics Inc. — one of North America’s largest plastics recyclers — has closed its doors.
“Due to the actions taken by our bank, Maine Plastics can no longer purchase or take delivery of your recyclables.
Maine was No. 8 on Plastics News’ most recent ranking of North American recyclers and brokers with annual throughput of 178 million pounds in 2012. Officials said in a new PN survey form that the firm’s volume had fallen to 162 million pounds in 2013, a decline of almost 9 percent. Maine did about 90 percent of its business in post-industrial recycling, with the remainder in post-consumer work.
