RE: Stretch wrap



Another good question is "Can their suppliers use another method of 
securring the shipment?"  This might eliminate the waste stream.  Items such 
as returnable shipping containers, incoming containers designed to be used 
for product shipment, etc. might allow securing the incoming (and out going) 
shipments with less waste.

I have recently visited a factory where one of the waste streams is stretch
wrap.  This client generates several tons per year from incoming pallets of
goods.

Is there a market for this to be recycled?
