Keep Your Used PET Plastic Bottles in the Recycling Loop

Did you know? Thanks to recycling, the life of a plastic bottle doesn’t end once the contents of the bottle are gone. Instead of being sent to a landfill, your used plastic bottles can be recycled again and again thanks to the characteristics of PET plastic. This ultimate packaging and recycling material can be recycled over and over to make new packaging and other useful products.

How can you keep your used bottles in the recycling loop and be part of the circular economy for plastic packaging? One of the easiest ways is to have a recycling bin in your home. Look for recycling code #1 to identify PET plastic containers and collect your used bottles. Then participate in curbside recycling to maximize the limitless use of plastics!
