    Tired of unnecessary plastic waste in your research lab? So are we! Polycarbin is a MA-based lab plastics recycler specializing in the recovery and remanufacturing of landfill-bound lab plastics. We offer programs for rigid lab plastics (#2, #5, and #6), ranging from buffer bottles to pipette tip boxes. Aside from lab plastics, we have programs for PPE (coveralls, sleeves, hairnets, etc.), as well as a program for non-soiled nitrile gloves. All programs are available as either on-site services whereby we come by and pick up the material, or as a mailback option through UPS. Each pound of plastic that you send our way is aggregated and processed within the state of MA. Once processed, we use the recycled feedstock to manufacture the next generation of lab products to be used at the bench. By participating in our recycling programs, you receive access to the Carbin Counter, Polycarbin's LCA-backed data portal, where you can measure your impact. 

    The Center for EcoTechnology (CET) and MassDEP host this list to help businesses find recycling service providers. Listings are self-reported and do not imply a recommendation or endorsement by CET or MassDEP.
