PLASTIC RECYCLING

NOT ALL PLASTICS ARE CREATED EQUAL. Most plastic containers have a recycle code located on the bottom of the container to inform the consumer what type of plastic it is. Knowing what type of plastic container you have is important to knowing if it is recyclable and how to recycle it. For more information regarding plastic recycling codes below.

PLASTIC RECIEVEING

Once plastic containers reach the recycling facility they are sorted by type (PET, HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PP). The bottles are then washed and granulated into flakes. Please prepare materials correctly and only include items accepted through your program. Including additional materials jeopardizes recycling markets and makes processing more costly. Items that contain non plastic components will be charged per pound bases.

Plastic Containers

Due to rising cost of oil, there is a growing demand and market for certain plastic types. We will pay for certain properly pre-sorted plastic containers.

GLASS RECYCLING

Not all glass is equal. In spite of best efforts to keep glass recycling programs free of ceramic cups and mugs, window pane and fluorescent bulbs and similar contaminants, they do show up because the public doesn’t realize they are not the same type of glass. They cause even greater inefficiency and are even more detrimental to glass plants. In addition, the colors – clear, brown and green – must be kept separate, because if mixed they contaminate one another.

HOW TO SORT & CATEGORIZE THEM?

Most recycling programs are set up to process container glass, like beverage bottles or condiment jars. This class meets certain regulations to be certified safe for food. But the glass that makes up everyday houshold items like ovenware, drinking glasses, incandescent light bulbs, windows, windshields and mirrors contain materials like lead and plastic that cannot be mixed with container glass.

Glass Containers

We stock several style glass containers including glass bottles, jars and vials. Contact us to receive a price offer for pre-sorted glass containers.

Glass Composites

window glass, mirrors and light bulbs contain chemicals that make them unsuitable for reuse at your recycling plant. However window and mirror glass can still be re-purposed

Broken Glass

Unfortunately, broken glass is NOT recyclable, for a number of reasons. Avoid breaking glass. Glass shards are difficult to sort by color, and even more difficult to market.
