Yamaha Rightwaters launches plastic recycling pilot program

SOLDOTNA, Alaska — Working in conjunction with Nexus Fuels of Atlanta, Ga., and Tommy Nobis Enterprises, of Marietta, Ga., Yamaha Rightwaters aims to return 10,000 pounds of Polyethylene and Polypropylene sheet plastics back into their base materials before the end of the calendar year. It will serve as a proof of concept for an envisioned national program intended to reduce plastic waste in the nation’s waterways.

Yamaha officials discussed the project in detail to an audience of conservationists, anglers and legislators at the 2021 Kenai Classic Roundtable on Recreational Fishing on Aug. 18, 2021.
