Precious Plastic Missoula gets creative with fighting waste

October 11, 2018View for printing

Precious Plastic is an international movement that works to take plastic recycling to the next level. Bryce Rowe works to bring that mission to Missoula.

Rowe runs Precious Plastic Missoula out of his garage. He has stacks of toaster ovens, a shredder and a press that he uses to repurpose plastic waste into durable products like lumber and door stops. He follows a three step process to repurpose plastic bags and other materials: shred it, melt it and mold it.


Rowe wants to raise enough money through the Precious Plastic Missoula GoFundMe page to get new, better equipment. His ultimate goal to turn the operation into a larger resource that the community can come to for any recycling needs.
