The Important Role of Recycling Centers

Have you ever wondered what happens after you place your used plastic bottles in the recycling bin? The bottles are sent to a recycling center where they are washed and processed into recycled plastic that can be used to make new bottles and other products. This takes place at recycling centers like Clean Tech, Plastipak’s recycling company, which applies a bottle to bottle approach to recycling.

Bottles in the recycling stream end up at recycling centers instead of landfills, which preserves natural resources and reduces the carbon footprint. Clean Tech’s global recycling centers utilize advanced recycling technologies to convert used plastic containers into high-quality post-consumer recycled resin.

Recycling Counts!™ Contact your city government to find out about curbside recycling in your area so that your used bottles can be recycled at recycling centers.
