Many of our favourite foods come in plastic bottles or plastic containers. From meats to juices, fruits to vegetables, and dairy products to cereals, plastic containers are fast becoming the choice of many manufacturers as it is cheaper than glass and is more resistant to shattering. HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is the commonly used plastic that is recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. The whole process of recycling post-consumer plastics packaging started over a quarter of a century ago and has become big business. There are a number of companies that Regrind HDPE and sell it to customers who need the recycled product. In fact, most of them buy and sell recycled plastics.
“HDPE Scrap” is the collected material which is then sold to be recycled. In the United States for example, about 60% of the population has access to a program that performs plastic recycling. Generally, those who do either leave them on the curbside in special bins to be picked up persons who are contracted to do so, or they may carry the plastics to a drop-off center themselves. Some other general uses of HDPE include bread trays, beverage cases, garbHDPE scrapage containers, and films for grocery sacks and snack food packaging. Once these containers and bags have been used, they are then recycled and used to make other HDPE products.
The companies that Regrind HDPE are always looking for more and more HDPE scrap to meet their needs and those of their clients. We as responsible citizens need to ensure that we do not simply throw away the plastic stuff that we use, but seek to place them in the correct bins for collection. If you are seeking to buy recycled HDPE plastics and want to know the price, check the HDPE Regrind website for more details.
