Vinyl banner recycling program

Barefoot Press, in conjunction with Whole Foods Markets, is implementing a recycling program for obsolete vinyl banners. Beginning immediately, you can drop off your old banners either at Whole Foods Market at Ridgewood Shopping Center on Wade Avenue in Raleigh, or at our location at 731 Pershing Rd. The banners will be delivered to a processor that can dispose of them in an eco-friendly manner.

Because we are a green printer, and vinyl banners are not really the best example of green printing, we wanted to offer a means for eco-friendly disposal. The banners would take many years to break down in a landfill, and could leach chemicals in the process.

Barefoot offers green printing alternatives to vinyl, such as heavy recycled paper for indoor use and natural canvas for indoor and outdoor use. However, if the application calls for a long-lasting product that must be water proof, vinyl may be the best, if not the only option. This program will help reduce the carbon footprint.

We offer a wide variety of large format print products, including translites, product labeling, static clings, posters, vehicle graphics and trade show displays. Your account manager can help guide you through the options for all of your point-of-sale materials.

    Hello,
    Is there a Whole Foods or other location near San Diego, CA that accepts vinyl banners for recycling? My company is moving in February and will have some banners to recycle. Please let me know.

    Thank you,
    Stacey

    Same question as the other Stacey…except I’m located in Asheboro, NC. I work for an organization who needs an eco-friendly way to dispose of vinyl banners, and other out-dated vinyl signage products. Do you have another collection point closer to Asheboro, or can you share info about the processor where the banners are taken? If we can save the fuel it would take to drive to Raleigh and do something closer to home that would help our conservation efforts too.
    Thank you,
    Stacey
