USA- Waste management solutions provider CheckSammy has joined consortium-based postuse plastic innovation company Cyclyx International.

As the newest member of the Cyclyx Consortium, CheckSammy will be eligible to utilize Cyclyx’s ability to find new recycling pathways and options for existing hard-to-recycle plastics.

This will ensure that plastic waste remains out of landfills while contributing to a circular economy system.

The new effort will also allow CheckSammy’s clients to meet their own sustainability goals, backed by the company’s extensive data capture to support environmental, social, and governance reporting.

CheckSammy co-founder and CEO Sam Scoten said: “We are excited to become a member of Cyclyx Consortium and cannot wait to bring CheckSammy’s data-backed sustainability solutions to fellow Consortium members.

“We pride ourselves on not only being experts in the planning of projects that make the most sense for our clients, but also being `boots-on-the-ground’ in the proper execution of those projects.”

CheckSammy has a base of more than 125,000 clients across North America. The company seeks environmentally and fiscally sustainable methods to handle waste materials such as post-consumer plastic.

At present, CheckSammy’s post-consumer plastics services account for nearly 45% of all the sustainability services it offers.

CheckSammy’s solution-based approach also aligns well with Cyclyx’s 10to90, a mission brand for increasing the recyclability of plastic from 10% to 90% through various efforts, including all-plastic collection, community engagement, and landfill-diversion programs.

Cyclyx Member Engagement vice-president Ron Sherga added: “The similarities in our intrinsic values and approaches to facilitating sustainable, circular solutions are what make CheckSammy such a good fit for our Consortium, as well as a possible future collaborator for our 10to90 programs.

“Both CheckSammy and Cyclyx agree that the best way to optimize the recyclability of post-use plastic is by making resources and programs simple to understand and accessible. As a result, we can keep more post-use material out of the landfill.”

Meanwhile, in October last year, Cyclyx International signed an agreement with ExxonMobil and LyondellBasell to develop a first-of-its-kind plastic waste sorting and processing facility in the Greater Houston area.

The facility addresses a critical missing link in the plastic waste supply chain by connecting community recycling programs to new and more advanced recycling technologies. These have the potential to take a wider variety of plastic materials.

The Cyclyx Circulatory Center is unique among plastic recovery facilities, with new technologies enabling it to analyze plastics based on their composition and sort them according to customer specifications for their highest and best reuse.
