CASE STUDY: PLASTIC CAR BUMPERS

As bumpers for automobiles transitioned from metal to plastic, body shops found that there were a very limited number of buyers for used parts. One issue was that bumper designs changed from year to year, making old parts less desirable. The other issue was that the plastic was painted, and nobody was recycling that type of material. The body shops had to pay to have this waste hauled away.

RMI worked at the forefront of this evolving market, helping to take problematic waste off of a body shop's hands and finding buyers for the ground bumpers. Numerous independent contractors have grown their businesses through the economic downturn by using this opportunity to supply bumpers to RMI
