Products Made from Recycled Plastics
You probably use numerous products made from recycled plastics that you did not even realize were recyclable. These types of items are grouped into two categories: recycled #1 plastics and recycled #2 plastics. You should bring all your plastics to Ranch Town Recycling Center Inc. in San Jose so more of these products can be produced. The most typical recycled #1 plastic is soda bottles; these items can be recycled and made into:
- Polar fleece
- Sleeping bag insulation
Recycled #2 plastics include milk jugs, detergent bottles and juice bottles. These materials can be recycled and made into:
- New bottles
- Play sets
- Stadium seats
- Plastic lumber
The advantages of plastic recycling are not some abstract concept you will never benefit from. You probably use these items on a somewhat frequent basis, so it is in your best interest to recycle all your plastic materials. This will convert them into everyday items people use, and you will be helping the environment in the process.
