Can I recycle medicine bottles?

I have empty plastic medicine bottles labeled 5 PP and 2 HDPE. Can they be recycled?

    Yes! PP, or Polypropylene, can be recycled as can HDPE, or High Density Polypropylene. You should remove the caps and labels, since they can contaminate the “soup” that they’re melted down to. Also, there may be some aid organizations, charities, or even schools that could use them as re-used medicine containers or art projects. Here’s one that might work: Northwest Haiti Christian Mission (and their address is: 150 Laralan Ave #E
    Frankfort, KY 40601.)
