A joint-venture PET recycling plant of Coca-Cola closed down

April 22/2011

(Recycling International) -- A joint-venture PET recycling plant that Coca-Cola Co. opened with great pride two years ago in Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA, has been closed down, according to a report in the specialist publication PlasticsNews.

United Resource Recovery Corp. reportedly shut in the first week of March and all 50 of the factorys workers were laid off, with virtually the entire office staff laid off shortly afterwards. In addition, John Burgess, President of Coca-Cola Recycling, has allegedly been placed on indefinite leave.

According to the PlasticsNews report, sources are claiming only around 1 million pounds of recycled PET from the Spartanburg plant - equivalent to only a fraction of the plants nameplate capacity of 56 million pounds - actually wound up back in PET bottles.
