Coreflute recycling

Coreflute and fluteboard polypropylene sheet are often used for printing temporary event signage for both indoor and outdoor displays. These materials contaminated mixed recycling bins and do not break down in landfill. However, through a specialised separate collection they can be recycled. Material is sent to a local processing facility where it is processed for re-manufacture.
