While you may not give much thought to the varying types that exist on a daily basis, there are many types that we accept. Among those we process are:
When some containers, like those made of post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are repurposed, they can be used to make clothing, while HDPE is often downcycled to serve a variety of purposes. One of the most commonly repurposed types, HDPE, is often turned into benches, tables, cargo liners, roadside curbs, trash cans, rulers or any number of other durable and useful products.
