What happens to the plastic we recycle?
HDPE, or type 2 plastics, are high-density polyethylene.
These plastics make up a heavier containers that many of our every day goods are stored in.
Some types of containers that are embossed with the code are:
Milk Bottles, Laundry detergent bottles, Tupperware, Bleach bottles, Shampoo bottles, Motor oil bottles, Plastic drums, piping, wheelie bins, Plastic milk bottles are 100% recyclable
It takes 125 recycled plastic milk bottles to manufacture a 140 litre wheelie bin from recycled plastic
Approximately 88% of the energy is saved by producing plastic from plastic as opposed to plastic from the raw materials of oil and gas.
