In celebration of Environment Week in Canada (during the week of June 5th annually) the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) and the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) highlighted the important headway their members are making in tackling the global challenge of plastic waste in the environment.
NOVA Chemicals Inc.

An alliance of global companies from the plastics and consumer goods value chain have launched a new organization to advance solutions to eliminate plastic waste in the environment, especially in the ocean.
Recycling programs for EPS, a foam used to protect products in transportation, food packaging and construction materials, have been growing for nearly two decades. In part, the growing success of EPS recycling can be attributed to companies like NOVA Chemicals, which has been creating innovative solutions for collecting EPS for recycling for the last five years. That's why the company is being honored with the EPS Industry Alliance's annual Excellence in EPS Recycling award.
COSMO Environmental Waste Containers are designed as a sustainable option for waste and recycling industries. Units are lightweight, durable, and low-maintenance, and are designed to deliver superior functionality and aesthetics compared to traditional steel and aluminum dumpsters. Available in 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 yard sizes, these low-noise, long-lasting containers are constructed from durable polymer which provides low maintenance due to corrosion, and graffiti-resistance. Units offer high visibility and are ideal for on-container advertising in locations such as sporting arenas, stadiums, restaurants, apartment and condominium complexes, consumer and big box stores, and corporate offices.
