Eco Plastic Products of Delaware
Take a Tour of Our Facility!
The effects of plastic pollution in the state of Delaware and throughout the world are severe and have negative impacts on our environment.
Plastic waste is a real problem and ECOP offers an intelligent solution.
The use of plastic bags, plastic water bottles, and plastic food containers in the United States is one of the biggest problems we face today. Not only do we ingest plastic particles from our food and water, on average, a single person in the U.S. produces about three pounds of trash each day totaling approximately 981,502,302 pounds of trash throughout the U.S.
ECOP's goal is to drastically decrease that number by educating the public on the importance of recycling, and how ECOP receives, sorts, and transforms discarded plastic into consumer goods.
At ECOP, individuals and groups come and learn about recycling and what we do at our facility. There are several options for schools, youth groups, and community organizations. Once our COVID closure expires, visits will resume.
Due to COVID, we are not giving any tours until further notice.

The plastic comes into our facility at Station 1.
It is then processed in the Densifier or the Extruder.
After grinding, plastic is then made into ECOP products. This bench is made of 31,000 plastic grocery bags.
