Blue Mountain Plastics

Blue Mountain Plastics (BMP) has been operating in Dufferin County since 2010 , as one of North America’s only closed loop recycling facilities. We currently purchase approximately 85% of Ontario’s blue box PET plastics and process this material into 100% recycled and recyclable water bottles. Each year we strive for continuous improvement in the areas of innovation and sustainability. 2017 saw a 33 percent increase in capacity by modifying our existing equipment and installing new technology. By recycling existing plastic as opposed to manufacturing new plastic, we reduce energy consumption by 76%, emissions by 78%, and water usage by 99%. BMP believes “there is enough plastic in the world today, we just need to find ways to reuse it.”
