Plastic

6 Types of Plastic:

1.Polyethlene Terephthalate (PETE)

2. High DensityPolyethlene (HDPE)

3. Vinyl (V)

4. Low Density Polyethlene (LDPE)

5. Polypropylene (PP)

6. Polystyrene (PS)


Plastic

#1 PETE

Polyethylene terephthalate.

Soda bottles

Food bottles

Trays

Can be recycled into

carpets

Fiberfill

T-shirts

Shopping bags




Plastic

#2 HDPE or high-density polyethylene.

Used in liquid detergent

Shampoo bottles

Tyvek mailing envelopes

Can be recycled into new containers if clear

Colored can be recycled into plastic lumber




Plastic

Vinyl or polyvinyl chloride (# 3 V or PVC)

Clear food packaging

Plumbing pipe

*Could be recycled but generally isn’t



Plastic

Low-density polyethylene (# 4 LDPE)

Very flexible and made into

bags for bread, frozen food, and grocery.

Some of these bags are recycled into new bags or plastic lumber such as Trex. This plastic is lightweight and trucking it back for recycling uses more energy than producing a virgin product.



Plastic

Polypropylene (# 5 PP)

Yogurt,

margarine,

and other food containers.

Like number 3 V, there are not enough containers to justify collecting it



Plastic

#6 PS - Polystyrene,

Solid PS is made into

compact disc jackets,

eating utensils

take-out food containers.

Styrofoam is used for

packing materials,

coffee cups,

meat trays,

egg cartons.

The cost of moving used Styrofoam is higher than making it from virgin oil
