ProActive Recyclable

High performance products which may be recycled after use in standard plastic or paper recycling streams.

Plastic

From rollstock for FFS machines to standup pouches, ProAmpac offers multiple recyclable products for plastic flexible packaging.

In North America we work with How2Recycle®, the most widely available infrastructure for recycling flexible packaging, to ensure our solutions meet store-drop off requirements.

In Europe ProAmpac follows the recycle ratings guidelines to communicate with customers about products’ ratings and recycle-ready structures.
