About

Evergreen Plastics has a history of consistent growth, capital investment, and success.

packagingEvergreen Plastics was founded in 1998 with a unique focus: recycling curbside PET, mostly post-consumer soft drink and water bottles. Since the beginning, we have produced the highest quality RPET resins in flakes and pellets.

Since 1998, we have tripled our size and broadened our scope. We still offer high quality RPET, and our largest source of raw materials is still curbside PET bottles. Beyond this, Evergreen now offers a host of related products and services for our customers. Evergreen is constantly evolving and growing.

We currently employ 200 people at our state of the art facility. Our facility sits on 28 acres in Clyde, Ohio.
