Plastic #1

This week, we’re breaking down the plastic recycling number system to ensure YOU know how to recycle right!
Today, we’re starting with plastic #1 PETE/PET. Plastic #1 is recyclable at the WWRA and includes items like clamshell containers, disposable water and pop bottles, food packaging, and detergent bottles. Plastic #1 is shipped to Clean Tech in Dundee where it is washed and shredded into pellets. The pellets are then used to make new bottles and clothing. Learn more at Clean Tech’s website.
