CASE STUDY

RainBird Case Study

Rain Bird Corporation is a leading global manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services headquartered in Azusa, California. The privately held company was founded in 1933 during California’s agricultural boom. Since the beginning, Rain Bird has produced and offered the industry’s broadest range of irrigation products for farms, golf courses, sports arenas, commercial developments and homes in more than 130 countries around the world.

RainBird reached out to California Plastics because they had parts that they discontinued but didn’t want the plastic to go to waste. California Plastics helped recycle 20 truckloads of plastic scrap material totaling over 64,000 lbs. The polypropylene plastic went through a reclamation process that involved shredding and then repelletization so the plastic could be used again.

California Plastics is helping the environment by offering recycling services such as plastic shredding, grinding, granulation, purgings, and scrap shredding. ABS, Acetal, Acrylic, HDPE, HMWHDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, Nylon, Nylon 6, Nylon 66, PC, PET, Polyamide, Polyester, PP, PS, PU, PUR, PVC, TPE, TPO, and UHW-PE, as well as composites, can all be processed by our plastic shredding service. If it’s plastic, we can shred and ground it to the size you require.
