    Most plastic utensils are made from Polystyrene, which is a type 6 plastic. This type of plastic is not easily recyclable, so perhaps the option left for you is to reuse them. However, there are environment-friendly alternatives to disposable cutlery. Some manufacturers offer 100% recycled, washable plastic cutlery. They are made from 100% recycled plastics such as recycled yogurt cups among others, and is recyclable in communities with #5 plastics recycling.
