Azek and thredUP Announce Plastic Recycling Partnership

The AZEK Company Inc., the manufacturer of low-maintenance and environmentally sustainable outdoor living products, including TimberTech® decking, Versatex ® and AZEK® Trim, and StruXure™ pergolas, and thredUP, one of the largest online resale platforms for women's and kids' apparel, shoes, and accessories, announce a new recycling partnership to responsibly transform plastic waste into long-lasting, low-maintenance outdoor living products.

Through this recycling partnership, AZEK will collect thredUP’s polyethylene plastic Clean Out Bags after the contents have been processed by thredUP, as well as thredUP’s post-industrial plastic film waste, and transport them to AZEK’s vertically integrated polyethylene recycling facility in Wilmington, Ohio. The materials will be processed and incorporated into new TimberTech decking, AZEK’s premium composite decking line that offers the natural beauty of wood, is made from approximately 85% recycled material and engineered to last a lifetime.

Since 2019, AZEK has recycled nearly 1.7 billion pounds of post-consumer and post-industrial waste and scrap material, repurposing it into products across its outdoor living and building products portfolio. In addition to its polyethylene plastic film recycling capabilities, AZEK is the largest vertically-integrated recycler of PVC in the United States.

Under this partnership, one-hundred percent of the Clean Out bags thredUP receives will be sent to AZEK as post-consumer material and repurposed into outdoor living products. These products can last for decades and are also recyclable at the end of their useful life.
