Markets and Collection Techniques

Brett Whalen, Business Development Manager, PreZero US


With our state-of-the-art facilities, we hope to set a new benchmark for how plastics are collected and recycled in the US. We promote the circular economy  by processing plastic waste into new raw materials, and produce recycled resins that provide a quality that is on par with virgin resins.


Brett has almost 15 years of experience in the recycling industry and comes from a family-owned recycling equipment company. He has worked for environmental start-ups, large waste haulers and processors. Brett is currently the Business Development Manager for PreZero, focused on integration, and creating new markets for recycled materials. Brett has the full scope of operations and understanding of America’s recycling infrastructure, and has ambitious goals of bringing circularity to scale.
