What kind of plastic are most vitamin bottles?



  1. 0 Votes

    Pill and vitamin bottles are generally made of #1, #2, or #5 plastic. However, they are not recyclable, due to the fact they have a different consistency than other bottles of the same plastic.

    I hope this helped!

    If you are wondering if vitamin bottles are recyclable, then check the bottom for a #1, 2, or 5. These numbers indicate that the plastic will melt at a certain temperature. Unfortunately, most vitamin bottles are made out of a different material that will have a different melting point than most plastics, thus rendering it incompatible with other plastics.  Some vitamin bottles may consist of HDPE (high density polyethylene) while others are PE (polyethylene). This should also be labeled on the back of the container.
