Our Guiding Principles

A company is only as strong as its foundation.


Just as it takes quality materials to make a quality product, it also takes a strong foundation to build a great company. Here at Denton Plastics, our company is built upon the following principles:


Denton Plastics has a global reputation for providing high-quality products – from virgin material to quality scrap material to reprocessed pellets. We are experts in classifying and separating materials, and our customers know they can count on us to deliver products that consistently surpass their expectations.


Denton Plastics is a leading full service resin supplier with decades of experience in plastics recycling, sustainability and innovative business solutions. We provide a complete range of products, processes and services to meet the needs of both customers and suppliers. Not only can we help businesses responsibly manage their plastic recycling; we can custom blend resins to meet the most exacting specifications. We thrive on the challenge of developing new processes and recycling solutions – the needs and success of our clients drive our work everyday.

With over 140 years of combined experience in the recycling industry and our unsurpassed processing capabilities, we can meet the needs of any organization, large or small.


Sustainability is key to our philosophy. Keeping plastics out of the waste stream makes sense for our planet and the businesses we serve. By grinding up old plastic and turning it into pellets, we are reducing the strain on our nation’s landfills while serving the needs of the automotive, construction and horticulture industries – just to name a few. Our clients in turn serve the needs of customers worldwide by providing high quality products. Everyone wins, profits are made and the environment is protected.

Family & Community

Denton Plastics is a family business with strong, local ties to the Pacific Northwest, and we consider our customers and suppliers to be a part of our family. We pride ourselves on creating long-term relationships with the companies we work with – both at our Portland, Oregon headquarters and around the world. These close-knit relationships help make Denton Plastics an unparalleled resource for a wide range of business needs.

Denton Plastics is a minority business enterprise.

Quality from start to finish to start again.
