In the December 17, 2015 edition of plasticsnews.com, Jim Johnson composed an article titled ‘Toyota leans into recycling as it streamlines national effort’ with the following report: “Toyota Motor Corp. North America is increasing recycling through a national program. The effort includes the company’s largest component centers in Ontario, CA and Hebron, KY., as well as regional component distribution centers in Cincinnati, L.A, San Francisco and Portland. Toyota is using Boles Supply Inc. as a contractor for its recycling, including component & packaging, through the company’s National Scrap Program. Boles provides a single vendor source to take all of the recyclables from the (6) sites.
Toyota workers can easily intermingle all recyclables without worrying about separating them, freeing up more time to do their component distribution. Juliana Dee, manager of the recycling program at Toyota says they are very protective of product quality and are handling it to ensure that defective products don’t get out in the marketplace. They had using dozens of vendors around the US; each basically had their own process, it wasn’t standardized and we saw some challenges and opportunities to improve. Going to a single vendor to handle recycling for all locations allowed Toyota to standardize and implement controls, to get components in and out the door. Recycling is cumbersome for the facilities to manage; Bolesi is handling those duties at the sites. For the six locations using Boles, the amount of material being recycled & diverted from landfills has increased. Items that were once trashed are now finding their way into the recycling stream. Foam and cloth, that were thrown away or incinerated, now gets recycled.
Toyota’s recycling program handles a variety of plastic items and provides them a secure system of knowing the unacceptable products no longer find their way back into the market. Plastic bumper covers are a good example of a part that the company had difficulty recycling before Boles came on board; now they are shredded & reprocessed to make new auto components. Toyota hopes to expand its national recycling program through Boles. Boles not only handles a wide variety of plastic for Toyota, but also packaging used to transport those products, such as bubble and shrink wrap. The complete article is available here.
This story relating to the salvage car market is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, any scrap vehicle buyer can tell you that the plastics and cloth-style materials are the least recycled components of a salvage vehicle. With this being said, it is fantastic that there are auto recyclers that have developed a means of extracting and reusing these components for their vehicle removal and scrap system. The other aspect is that sometimes during their production, certain components are determined to be faulty or irregular. Once this determination is made those pieces were (previously) sent to the various vendors for recycling. With the new single-stream “monitored’ system, Toyota can be assured that none of the components are removed from the process and sold back into the aftermarket.
