PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire, USA, September 23, 2021 - Cyclyx International, a
consortium feedstock management joint venture founded by Agilyx and ExxonMobil,
has announced Reynolds Consumer Products, LLC ("Reynolds") as its newest member.
Reynolds has been making great strides in the effort to helping divert
hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills with their Hefty® EnergyBag® program. As
a Cyclyx member, Reynolds will bring its learnings and expertise in creating a
more circular economy for waste plastics playing an active role in helping
Cyclyx build out its 10 to 90 waste plastic takeback programs.
The Hefty® EnergyBag® program gives consumers the ability to collect
hard-to-recycle plastic items in addition to their existing recycling efforts.
Since the Energy Bag® program's inception in 2016, Hefty® has diverted over
1,500 tons of plastic waste from landfills. Hefty's collaboration with Cyclyx
aspires to enhance the program and greatly expand their geographic reach and
volume of waste plastics collected.
As a member of the consortium, Reynolds Consumer Products joins a growing list
of companies that are helping to lead the way to build a robust reverse
logistics supply chain for waste plastics. As a Cyclyx member, Reynolds will
work with Cyclyx to leverage the Hefty® EnergyBag® program learnings to create
various options for corporations, consumers and communities to collect waste
plastics and find their best recycling or recovery pathway.
"Reynolds Consumer Products is committed to supporting the recovery rates of
hard-to-recycle plastics" said Lisa Burns, Sr. Vice President, Marketing for
Hefty Waste and Storage. "We look forward to working with Cyclyx and other
consortium members to help collected materials go to higher value use."

Joe Vaillancourt, CEO of Cyclyx. "As a company that has already exhibited
leadership and made great strides in the recovery of hard-to-recycle plastic
waste, Reynolds is a valuable participant in our mission to drive plastic
