Environmental Position

Highland Plastics supports the
5R's of packaging.

REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE - RECOVER - REMOVE
  • Reduce - Containers are designed with minimum amount
    of plastic, while maintaining a sturdy high quality product.

  • Reuse - We encourage the reuse of the product in alternative applications to reduce the amount of alternative plastics
    consumed.

  • Recycle - Hi-Plas products can be recycled in standard
    recycling streams.

  • Recover - Burn for energy (Technology is currently being
    used in Sweden).

  • Remove - Use degradable plastics (see our degradable page). When the first 4 R's fail, degradation is the safety net.
