Vycom (Scranton, PA) announced the results of its inaugural on-site recycling program targeted specifically for exhibitors using rigid PVC and acrylic at the ISA International Sign Expo 2022, held in Atlanta from May 4-6, 2022.

According to a release by Vycom, the company collected nearly 3,000 pounds of rigid PVC and acrylic materials from the show floor. Vycom placed collection bins in exhibitors’ booths and in the ISA Green Zone, partnering with Cutworx USA, Kongsberg PCS, and Mimaki USA to collect scrap and trim used during their demonstrations.

The Vycom Recycling Program is designed to take back and recycle printed and unprinted rigid PVC and acrylic sheets, as well as scraps and drops from finishing and fabricating. Vycom then worked with recycler the AZEK Co., which has diverted approximately 500 million pounds of waste and scrap from landfills in 2021.

“There was an overwhelmingly positive response to the recycling program, not just from other exhibitors but from attendees as well,” Kevin Duffy, vice president of sales and marketing for Vycom, is quoted in the release. “Many sign companies are acutely aware of the lack of transparent recycling options for rigid PVC and acrylic materials.”
