What kind of plastics make good recycled products?



  1. 0 Votes

    My research indicates that the best recyclable plastic out there is PET, or #1 plastics. As a raw material, PET is made into beverage bottles, detergent bottles, etc. PET is commonly recycled into polyester fibers, which can then be used to make clothing, carpets, pillows, and even more PET bottles. The last part there is key…PET can be recycled into the same product over again. Many other plastics are unable to be processed into the same product a second time, as their properties are irreversibly altered by the recycling process. Just somethign to think about the next time you choose a bottled drink.
