ORPET is a state-of-the-art recycling facility designed and built to process Post-Consumer PET bottles into clean PET flake or RPET “Recycled PET”. Our recycling processes sort, granulate, and wash the PET material for re-use by a wide variety of end-users.
ORPET’s primary stream of supply is OBRC, which handles the logistics of the Oregon Bottle Bill. The Reverse Vending Machines at redemption centers and retail stores collect plastic bottles and OBRC gathers them from over 2,700 locations across the State.
The PET bottles are then compacted into bales and shipped to ORPET for processing.
