Stretch wrap is commonly made of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). It arrives at your dock in a fairly clean condition and if kept that way it has a real market value. Stretch wrap may well be the most valuable recyclable material in your warehouse/distribution center.

Stretch wrap is one of the largest components of a warehouse/distribution center’s waste stream. Those who don’t recycle it pay to have it hauled away. This could mean thousands of pounds of stretch wrap per year which translates into dollars saved or dollars spent.

Shrink wrap is commonly used as an overwrap on many types of packaging, including cartons, boxes, beverage cans and pallet loads. A variety of products may be enclosed in shrink wrap to stabilize the products, unitize them, keep them clean or add tamper resistance. It can be the primary covering for some foods such as cheese, meats,vegetables and plants.
