Close the Loop works with US manufacturers who produce high quality & unique recycled products from waste tires, plastic milk jugs & glass bottles. We are working to increase consumer confidence, awareness and demand for recycled content products and help grow markets. We strive to encourage people to view our waste as a valuable resource.
Close the Loop offers many eco-friendly recycled products that you may be interested in using on your designs. Anything from our 100% recycled plastic, solid fencing and composite lumber, to mulches made of rubber and glass, and landscape timbers.
