Videos NexTrex Label
The Trex Company is pleased to provide a free package labeling initiative as part of its NexTrex Retail Recycling Program. This new labeling option allows brands that sell products in recyclable packaging to inform consumers about how to easily and responsibly dispose of packaging material, while also promoting their commitment to sustainability and involvement in the largest store drop off program in the country.

Benefits of the NexTrex Label
Trex offers a sustainable solution for packaging once it has served its primary purpose. The NexTrex label certifies that the packaging has been evaluated and approved by Trex to be recycled by Trex. The NexTrex label assures consumers that they have the option to recycle packaging at grocery store drop off locations all over the United States. Trex is the largest U.S. recycler of polyethylene film. Trex partners with grocery and retails stores throughout the U.S. to recycle PE film collected from consumers. There is no cost to get your products certified for recycling through Trex.
