Plastic #2

Let’s continue breaking down the plastic recycling number system to ensure YOU know how to recycle right! Today, we’re talking about plastic #2 HDPE. Plastic #2 is recyclable at the WWRA and is a more durable plastic used for cleaning supply and cosmetic packaging, outdoor furniture, and plastic crates. To recycle plastic #2 correctly, rinse all products out and make sure bulky items are broken down enough to fit in WWRA bins. Plastic #2 is shipped to Clean Tech in Dundee where it is washed and shredded into pellets. These pellets are then used to make new bottles and clothing. Learn more at Clean Tech’s Website.
