TYPES OF PLASTICS WE COLLECT
POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE (PETE)
PET is one of the most widely used plastics in the world. It is commonly used to make plastic drink bottles and is very recyclable. The sheer number of plastic bottles produced around the world makes PET a very valuable resource for recycling.
OTHER RECYCLE PLASTICS

HDPE is a high-strength plastic that is often used for milk jugs, laundry detergent, water pipes, and other applications requiring rigid plastic.
LOW-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE (LDPE)
